A certain question you can ask about, Sinus Lift Complications and its alternatives- basal implants and pterygoid implant. Some may suggest about pterygoid implant or basal implant alternative of sinus lift. Implantation depends on the oral condition of patients, his/her age and many other factors. A professional dental expert can suggest you here.
Alternatives to Sinus Lift
With some few words, a sinus lift procedure is a surgery that adds bone height to the upper jaw in the area of premolars and molars which also sometimes called as sinus augmentation. Between the jaw and the maxillary sinuses, a bone graft is added hereby. The sinus membrane is moved upward or “lifted” to make the room for the bone. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons have done this kind of surgery.
Some patients who have lost teeth in upper jaw and want to fixed teeth on dental implants; sometimes they find they have lost a lot of amount of bone. This was vital for anchoring teeth implants. There are many reasons for loss of bone volume under the maxillary sinus.
The patients who need implants or full mouth dental implants are forced to undergo sinus lift procedures which delay and complicate the patient’s desire to instantly getting fixed teeth. There are several causes, why sinus lift procedures are being replaced by basal implants and pterygoid implants.
With Basal implants and Pterygoid implants after implant placement, the patient can get crowns within 3 days and avoid sinus lift complications. There are some disadvantages of sinus lift operation given below.
1. Time Factor:
A patient desiring to have dental implants in the upper jaw has to wait for 6 months to 1 year for the bone graft. Because bone graft needs time to become bone. Then the crowns are placed on sinus lift dental implants only. Sometimes the implant is placed when bone height becomes 3 mm and then it had to wait for the next 6 months. In total, the patient needs almost 1 year to gets a crown.
Permanent Dentures cost is bit expensive because of its long-term treatment. We have stopped doing sinus lift since 5years at our center for these reasons. With basal implants and pterygoid implants, the patient gets permanent teeth in 3 daysTM at a reasonable price and quickly.
3. Requires Repeated Surgeries:
Because of Sinus Lift complications, bone graft failure has become very common.
With the vastly efficient basal implant, tuberopterygoid implants, and zygomatic implants the upper jaw can be easily restored with implants. Also, the permanent bridge fixed on the 3rd day besides sinus lift. Also, the success rate of pterygoid implants and basal implants are very encouraging.
