Both crowns and most bridges are fixed prosthetic devices. Unlike removable devices such as dentures, which you can take out and clean daily, dental crowns and bridges are cemented onto existing teeth or dental implants, and can only be removed by a dentist.

SINUS LIFT

A sinus lift is a surgery that adds bone to your upper jaw in the area of your molars and premolars. It's sometimes called a sinus augmentation. The bone is added between your jaw and the maxillary sinuses, which are on either side of your nose. To make room for the bone, the sinus membrane has to be moved upward, or "lifted." A sinus lift usually is done by a dentist specialist. This could be either an oral and periodontist or prosthodontist.

What It's Used For

A sinus lift is done when there is not enough bone height in the upper jaw, or the sinuses are too close to the jaw, for dental implants to be placed. There are several reasons for this:

  • Many people who have lost teeth in their upper jaw — particularly the back teeth, or molars — do not have enough bone for implants to be placed. Because of the anatomy of the skull, the back of the upper jaw has less bone than the lower jaw.
  • Bone may have been lost because of periodontal (gum) disease.
  • Tooth loss may have led to a loss of bone as well. Once teeth are gone, bone begins to be resorbed (absorbed back into the body). If teeth have been missing for a long time, there often is not enough bone left to place implants.
  • Tooth loss may have led to a loss of bone as well. Once teeth are gone, bone begins to be resorbed (absorbed back into the body). If teeth have been missing for a long time, there often is not enough bone left to place implants.
  • The maxillary sinus may be too close to the upper jaw for implants to be placed. The shape and the size of this sinus vary from person to person. The sinus also can get larger as you age. Sinus lifts have become common during the last 15 years as more people get dental implants to replace missing teeth.

 

How It's Done

Dr. Lorenzana will cut the gum tissue where your back teeth used to be. The tissue is raised, exposing the bone. A small, oval window is opened in the bone. The membrane lining the sinus on the other side of the window separates your sinus from your jaw. This membrane is gently pushed up and away from your jaw.

Granules of bone-graft material are then packed into the space where the sinus was. The amount of bone used will vary, but usually several millimeters of bone is added above the jaw.

Once the bone is in place, the tissue is closed with stitches. Your implants will be placed four to nine months later. This allows time for the grafted material to mesh with your bone. The amount of time depends on the amount of bone needed.

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • How do I care for my dental implants?

    A Home care for your dental implants consists of brushing and flossing. Regular dental visits are required for long-term health and success.

  • How long can dental implants last?

    A dental implant can last many years if cared for properly. Many implants have been in place for more than 40 years.

  • If a dental implant fails to Osseo integrate, what happens?

    The implant is removed and the site is allowed to heal. Another implant can often be placed after healing if there is adequate bone.

  • Are dental implants covered by insurance?

    Like most elective procedures, dental implants are not covered by most dental insurance plans.  However, we may offer payment plan options.

  • If you have missing teeth, are you losing bone mass?

    Without the tooth to stimulate the jaw, the bone beneath it will begin to shrink (atrophy) in the same manner that muscle underneath a cast gets smaller. Since your facial bone supports the skin and muscles on top of it, losing volume can cause your face to look prematurely aged. The good news is: Dental implants offer a solution to stop bone loss. .
