If you have recently inquired about dental implants in New York then you may have got as far as your initial consultation only to hear you need sinus lift surgery or a sinus augmentation to ensure your dental implant treatment is a success. But what is sinus lift surgery? Is it really necessary to have a sinus lift surgery and what will this treatment feel like and how will it affect you?
New York periodontist Dr. Rahmani is a nationally recognized as America’s Top Periodontist, one of the best sinus lits specialists in New York City. Dr. Rahmani provides a full range of periodontal procedures in NYC including sinus lift.
A sinus augmentation is a dental surgical procedure. When a tooth is lost, the vacant tooth socket collapses as it recovers, leaving a toothless area. This collapse causes a loss in both height and width of the surrounding bone, which makes dental implantation impossible.
A dental sinus lift NYC treatment corrects the area of the upper jaw in between your molars and premolars. It fills the area on either side of your nose, between your jaw and the maxillary sinuses. The sinus membrane is lifted to make space for the bone. This procedure is typically done by a periodontist or a professional dentist.
Why Sinus Lift Augmentations Are Important
If your NYC dental implant dentist has suggested a sinus lift prior to dental implants then they will have had a very good reason for doing so and you can rest assured that this sinus lift procedure is necessary. This type of procedure is best carried out by a specialist periodontist such as Dr. Navid Rahmani at Manhattan Periodontics and Implant Dentistry as picking a specialist dentist will help ensure sinus lift in NYC treatment proceeds smoothly.
Additionally, bone can be lost due to advanced gum disease and once teeth are removed then bone loss will naturally occur. If you lost teeth quite some time ago and have only just thought about having dental implants then it is likely that you will have suffered some bone loss. A lot of this bone loss occurs during the first year or so after tooth loss, which is why it is often better to have dental implants sooner rather than later after tooth loss.
