Sinus Lifting – What It Is? – Why Is It Necessary?

    Sinuses are pockets of air inside the bones around the nose. These pockets are surrounded by a mucousmembrane just like those in the nose.

     

    The sinuses which are at the upper jaw over the cheeks are called maxillary sinuses. Lower base of the maxillary sinuses correspond to the teeth roots at the back of our mouths at the upper jaw. When a tooth becomes loose at the back of the upper jaw at early ages, osteolysis is observed since this area does not receive any chewing force which in turn may cause the maxillary sinus base to come down. If the sinus drooping due to the lost teeth at the back of the upper jaw has progressed beyond a certain level (if the distance between the bone and the sinus cavities are 6mm or less) it is not possible to directly apply implants to this area and its surrounding areas. Sinus lifting – which is lifting the sinus membrane up -is an advanced surgery method applied on the bone area to be implanted when thebone area is less than 3-4mm. Sinus lifting is done by opening a window on the bone surface without damaging the sinus membrane and then lifting this membrane up, then applying the graft – bone material – in this gap, and finally fixing the graft in place and closing the gap by suitable materials.

     

    The areas with drooping sinuses are moved upward via sinus lifting procedure, allowing this area to support implants. We can thicken a 1mm bone area to over 10mm via sinuslifting. In order for the implant application to be healthy and durable,implants of sufficient size and diameter can be inserted via sinus lifting doneby Maxillofacial Surgeons. The most important thing to remember is not to applythe implant to the existing bone, but to make the bone support the implant ofnecessary size and diameter.

     

    ALVEOLEBONE AUGMENTATION
    One of the greatest problems overtime after tooth extraction is the bone loss at the jaw bones. If the lostteeth will be treated with implant applications, the height and the size of thebone becomes more important. Implant applications require bones of specific height and thickness. The loss of the bone mass due to lost teeth at early agesor extreme gingivitis can be restored this way. As these restorations can be performed on the patients via bones taken from their bodies, they can also be performed via inorganic or synthetic materials. One of the most important developments in maxillofacial surgery is that these applications are now easier, faster and more secure.
