No more Sinus Lifting and Bone grafting Procedures !!!!!

What is Sinus Lifting ( SINUS AUGMENTATION ) ?

Maxillary Sinuses are present on either side of the nose . When the bone height is minimal in the premolar and molar region due to long term missing teeth , sinus lifting is done .

The sinus membrane is lifted upwards for gaining space to place the bone graft . . Bone graftings are done by taking bone from other parts of the body like chin, hip etc … Once the bone grafting is done , it takes 6 months for the graft to become a normal bone . After 6 months , the implant is placed . The crown is placed again after nother 6 months . So to Implant and get a teeth , it takes 1 to 1 ½ years.

This how sinus lifting and bone grafting is being done ..

We in Best Laser Dental Clinic and Implant Centre , HAVE STOPPED DOING SINUS LIFTS AND BONE GRAFTS since 10 years because of the following reasons :

COMPLICATIONS OF SINUS LIFT AND BONE GRAFTING :

  • Sinusitis
  • Sinus Infection
  • Inflammation
  • Severe Pain
  • Itching
  • Graft failure
  • Oro-antral communication / oro-antral fistula
  • Tilting or loosening of implants

DISADVANTAGES OF SINUS LIFTS AND BONE GRAFTS :
1. Cost

The cost involved in sinus and bone grafting procedure is very high because of the long duration and multiple visits involved in the procedure

2 . NUMBER OF VISITS IS MORE

Sinus lifting procedures involves multiple surgical visits

  • Surgery for placing the bone graft
  • Surgery for implant placement after 6 months
  • Surgery for exposing the implant and placing the abutment and crown after 6 months
  • 3 . Surgical procedure has got many de-merits :

  • The sinus membrane may tear
  • Bone grafts taken from hip, thigh or any other region might fail and get infected
  • Sometimes , the bone grafts fail to integrate with the existing bone
  • BASAL IMPLANTS have completely eradicated the sinus lifting and bone grafting procedures .

    How ???????

    BASAL IMPLANTS AND PTUBERO-TERYGOID IMPLANTS

    Basal implants take support from the cortical bone . The sinus floor is a cortical bone and basal implants are placed engaging the cortical bone to get more stability . .

    Basal implants ( Bi-cortical Implants ) are available with many sizes starting from very minimal diameter , So measuring the distance between the sinus floor and bone , the implant size is choosen accordingly .
