Maxillary sinuses are air-filled cavities in the upper jaw. Severe bone loss can cause the floor of the maxillary sinus to lower and get close to gums. This leads to insufficient height of bone and dental implants cannot be placed. Therefore, before placing the implant screw, the sinus lining is “lifted” and either rhBMP-2 or a bone graft is tucked below the lining.[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner equal_height=”” animation_delay=”” disable=”” id=”” class=””][vc_column_inner vertical_align=”top” animation_delay=”” width=”1/3″][vu_image_box image=”1891″ ratio=”2:1″ title=”X-ray showing region in upper jaw with bone insufficient to place implants” description=”” read_more_text=”Read More” link=”” class=””][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner vertical_align=”top” animation_delay=”” width=”1/3″][vu_image_box image=”1888″ ratio=”2:1″ title=”Sinus lift done and implants placed” description=”” read_more_text=”Read More” link=”” class=””][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner vertical_align=”top” animation_delay=”” width=”1/3″][vu_image_box image=”1889″ ratio=”2:1″ title=”X-ray showing dental implants” description=”” read_more_text=”Read More” link=”” class=””][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner equal_height=”” animation_delay=”” disable=”” id=”” class=””][vc_column_inner vertical_align=”top” animation_delay=”” width=”1/3″][vu_image_box image=”1890″ ratio=”2:1″ title=”X-ray showing increased bone height after sinus lift and following prosthesis placement” description=”” read_more_text=”Read More” link=”” class=””][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner vertical_align=”top” animation_delay=”” width=”1/3″][vu_image_box image=”1887″ ratio=”2:1″ title=”After placing ceramic crowns” description=”” read_more_text=”Read More” link=”” class=””][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner vertical_align=”top” animation_delay=”” width=”1/3″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_column_text]Following this, quantity of bone increases and the implant screw can be easily placed. Implant supported crown or bridge can then be fabricated to replace the missing tooth/teeth. Sinus lift is an easy, safe and predictable procedure done for increasing bone height for the insertion of a dental implant in the upper jaw.

Dr. S.M. Balaji excels at sinus lift implant procedures and performs several intricate cases with ease even under just local anesthesia.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][/vc_section]
