Visiting the dentist can be very disagreeable for many patients and, in special cases, if a sinus lift is needed, our medical team in Dubai can guide its patients through all the process and treatment. Sinus graft, sinus augmentation or sinus lift procedure is a surgical method which aims to increase the amount of bone in the upper jaw bone, in the area of the premolar and molar teeth, by lifting the lower sinus membrane, also known as ‘Schneiderian membrane’ and placing a bone implant. Our dentists are qualified to offer proper details about the available dental implants in Dubai in special cases like this.
How long does this procedure take?
Sinus lifts can be in most cases an unpleasant experience for patients because the procedure takes more than one hour and involves significant disturbance. Patients need to rest at home for three to ten days due to the pain, anxiety and severe, unappealing facial swelling and marks. Such an important dental procedure will be explained step by step by our dentists in Dubai.
Six to nine months after the procedure, the new bone is generated and then a second technique is necessary to insert a dental implant into the newly created bone. This is followed by a three to five months waiting period for the dental implant to be assimilated into the bone when the prosthetic tooth can finally be introduced. It is known that the maxillary sinuses are two deep cavities positioned behind the cheekbones and just above the upper molar teeth in the back of the mouth. As people age, the sinuses enlarge and the jawbone shrinks in size. If upper molars are lost, the bone reduction is even more severe and, in more than 50% of these major cases, the remaining jawbone lacks the necessary capacity to sustain a dental implant.
How to take care after a sinus lift procedure
Your bone graft is made up of many particles and that is why you may find some small granules in your mouth for the first several days. Our dentists in Dubai will advise the patients not to alarm because it’s normal to have some of them come out of the graft site. Here are some things that your dentist in Dubai will recommend you not to do:
• disturb or touch the wound;
• rinsing or spitting for two days to allow blood clot and graft material steadiness;
• lift or pull on the lip to look at the sutures. This can really cause harm to the wound site and tear the sutures;
• apply pressure with your tongue or fingers to the grafted area, as the material is movable during the initial healing;
Your Dubai dentist will provide you with the steps needed after this important dental procedure. The patient will be allowed to have gentle cleaning, not too dynamically as he can disturb some of the bone graft granules. If a fractional denture or a fin was placed in your mouth, you may have to see your recuperative dentist have it adjusted and then you will learn how to eliminate and substitute it properly. It is our goal that your recovery is as smooth and nice as possible. We invite you in our modern dental clinics in Dubai for numerous treatments, suitable for every need you might have.
Our team of dentists in Dubai will be more than pleased to guide and assist you in your major dental treatment and for any other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
