Sinus Lift Surgery in New York at Staten Island Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery provides sinus augmentation for those requiring a sinus lift in Staten Island.
Sinus Lift in New York City can be used to increase bone density in the jaw in order to better support dental implants. When teeth have been lost, especially for a long period of time, tooth supporting bone in the jaw may begin to deteriorate. Periodontitis and other diseases may also contribute the deterioration of tooth supporting bone. Patients who wish to replace their missing teeth with dental implants may need surgery, such as sinus lift in NY, bone grafting, or Bone Morphogenetic Protein Infuse® Graft before their dental implant surgery in order to augment the upper jaw bone, so it has enough bone density to support dental implants. Sinus lift in NY is particularly beneficial to patients whose sinuses are too close to the jaw bone to support dental implants.
Sinus lift in NYC can restore the density to the jawbone to support dental implants so the sinus membrane is undisturbed by the dental implant. Without proper support from the jawbone, dental implants won’t have enough of an anchor to hold them in place. Traditionally, bone grafts are used to give more bone density to patients who desire dental implants, but patients whose maxillary sinuses are too close to the jaw do not have the room between the jaw and sinuses to house a graft. Sinus lift in NY creates a pocket between the jaw and sinuses for bone to be implanted, so patients without enough room for bone grafting may still have sinus lift in New York as an option to build bone in their jaw to support the dental implants that they need.
Dr. Hoffman can determine what type of bone material to use in your individual sinus lift with an x-ray or CT scan. Dr. Hoffman will discuss which option is best for you after examining x-ray and CT scan results during your personal consultation. During sinus lift in NY, Dr, Hoffman will perform an incision over the jaw bone to create a space for the bone substitute, or bone grafting material. The bone grafting material will be placed in the space he creates between the sinus membrane and the jaw bone. After the graft is in position, the graft will need time to heal and form to your natural bone before dental implants can be inserted. Although the time between sinus lift in NY and receiving dental implants may vary on a patient by patient basis, Dr. Hoffman typically waits 6 to 9 months between surgeries.
