What problem does it solve?
Sinus lift is done when there is not enough bone in the upper jaw for dental implants to be placed. During the procedure the surgeon fills up the area with bone-graft material. In some cases it can be performed simultaneously with the implant placement.
Duration of the treatment:
The procedure of sinus lift takes about 60-90 minutes
Costs of the treatment:
Panoramic X-ray – (8.000 HUF)
Oral hygiene treatment – (from 15.000 HUF)
If you would like to replace missing teeth and are not happy with a removable denture, your dentist will suggest getting dental implants. Dental implants require enough bone material to drill in, and good bone density. If the bone around the upper canines becomes too thin, you may need to fill the area up. This is called a sinus lift.
Why are sinus lifts necessary?
- Tooth loss causes the alveolus to disintegrate if it does not hold teeth or an implant
- Missing teeth can lead to unhealthy chewing and biting habits
- A faulty alveolus can lead to further tooth loss
A sinus lift surgery can be done with two techniques:
1. Vertical (closed) sinus lift
The sinus cavity is reached through the oral cavity. During the procedure we lift the mucous membrane and push it up a bit, and fill the cavity underneath up with bone graft material. The dental implants are placed in at the same time, and are secured and steady after the healing time is up.
2. Horizontal (open) sinus lift
The oral surgeon opens a tiny window on the bone, pushing it forward, along with the mucous membrane. The cavity is then filled up with bone graft material, but the implant can only be placed 3-4 months afterwards, once the healing period is over.

As all surgical procedures, sinus lifts may cause some discomfort once the anaesthetic wears off- bleeding, swelling and some dull pain are the usual symptoms. After the procedure, your dentist will give you written instructions on what you can and cannot do, these need to be followed to the letter. The discomfort can be minimized using these simple guidelines.
