How Does A Sinus Lift Improve Your Chances Of Getting Dental Implants?
If you know you want a sinus lift, then among the first things you must do with your dentist is get x-rays. Following an analysis of your jaw and sinus, your dentist will know your situation to properly move forward with the procedure. The health and measurements of your jaw bone and sinus membrane must be made before proceeding, as the reasons for needing extra bone in your back molars may vary.
The bone to be used in the procedure could come from either your own body, a cadaver, or even be synthetic. If the bone is taken from your own body, it could be from just about anywhere, including your hip and below your knee.
During the healing process, you may have swelling and bleeding in the area. It’s possible the stitching can be undone, and the bone put in place can get loose if you blow your nose or sneeze too hard. Additionally, your dentist will prescribe to you different types of medication, such as antibiotics, to keep inflammation and pain down.
Seven to ten days after the initial operation, a specialist will see you. They will assess your progress and remove your stitches if they have not already dissolved. From here, it’s a matter of checking in and making sure the healing goes smoothly. After several months, once you’ve fully healed, you’re ready for implant dentures.
