Sinus Lift Procedures at Marylebone Implant Centre

The Sinus Lift procedure, also referred to as the Lateral Window Technique, is typically performed when there isn’t enough bone in a patient’s upper jaw to have dental implants fitted. due to the close proximity to the maxillary sinus.

The Maxillary Sinuses tend to enlarge during our life – we call it Pneumatisation of the sinuses. Also, when an upper molar is extracted or as a result of Periodontal (Gum) Disease, severe bone resorption may happen in the area.

Why Patients May Require a Sinus Lift Procedure

As a combination of all these factors, there may be insufficient bone in order to place Dental Implants in the Posterior Maxilla. In this case, a Sinus Lift may be performed in order to enhance bone volume in that area.

In this procedure the surgeon would open a small window on the sinus wall, carefully detach and lift the Schneiderian Membrane and insert Bone Graft material into the treatment area. This technique may be combined with dental implant placement or undertaken in a two-stage approach. In this case, the implantologist may need to wait up to 6-9 months for the bone to mature before placing the implants.
