Sinus lift – what is it?
Raising the sinus floor or sinus lift is a special form of bone building in the upper jaw. If, for various reasons, the bone in the upper jaw is not sufficient for an implant restoration, it is possible to “grow” bone in the upper jaw.
Sinus lift – how is this performed?
A small operation is performed to place a small window into the bony boundary of the anterior wall of the maxillary sinus and lift the floor of the maxillary sinus. The mucosa of the maxillary sinus is now carefully elevated and previously removed autologous bone material and PRP are then brought into the opened maxillary sinus below the mucosa. The height of the elevation is determined by the later implant height.
Here, the bone material grows together with the surrounding bone and forms a resilient and durable implant foundation in the next few weeks.
Dr. Thomas Franke and his team will be happy to give you detailed information about the details and the procedure in our practice at Stuttgarter Platz 1 in Berlin Charlottenburg.
