When performing an open sinus lift, the dentist makes an incision in the gums to expose the jaw bone and sinuses.
The process enables inserting a lot of bone and significantly expanding the jaw bone. The process is suitable for people who suffer from extensive bone loss who need a substantial sinus lift.
In this case, the healing process includes short supervision in the clinic after the procedure completes, and later resuming routine life. Pain, swelling and bleeding in the treatment area are possible following this treatment. These side-effects pass after a few days.
A closed sinus lift is performed in case there is only need for a small addition of bone? The method includes performing a hole in the palate, through which we insert the desirable amount of bone. The insertion of the dental implant may be combined within this dental implantation treatment.
