Maximillary sinus lift
Breast Jaw Lift
What is a maxillary sinus lift?
Maxillary sinus lift is an oral surgery technique that serves to increase the vertical thickness of the maxillary bone (upper arch) in the area of the premolars and molars, by positioning a bone graft.
Maxillary sinus lift is a necessary procedure to increase the bone volume before an implant in in the molar area of the upper arch.
What is the Maxillary Sinus?
Maxillary sinuses are cavities present inside the skull bone, located near the roots of the premolars and molars.
When the premolars and molars fall out, the thickness of the bone reduces due to a process of bone resorption.
The consequence of the reduction of the maxillary bone tissue is that it makes implant placement impossible because the dental prostheses do not have an adequate bone support in which to integrate.
Maxillary Elevation is preparatory to Implant Treatment
The maxillary sinus lift is a necessary procedure before the implant treatment: through the bone tissue graft, the vertical thickness of the
maxillary bone is increased, making possible a stable and safe anchoring of the dental implant.
