Oral Surgeon; Periodontist, etc. #: Is iRaise, a minimally invasive sinus lift procedure, available to patients in the United States, at this time?

Absolutely: A sinus lift operation performed with CAT scan control and knowing the anatomy of the maxillary sinus can be performed not only by oral surgeons, periodontists, but also by may general dentists who have taken multiple courses for this operation. I am surprise at the question because there are thousands of well trained dentists who perform a sinus lift for implant surgery. ...Read more

Which is the more invasive and uncomfortable of the 2 dental procedures if there ever were a choice of either: internal or external sinus lift?

Which is the more invasive and uncomfortable of the 2 dental procedures if there ever were a choice of either: internal or external sinus lift?

Internal: An external sinus lift is considered to be the more invasive of the two procedures. It is a larger incision. Both are effective ways of increasing bone volume for the placement of implants.

I assume that without the graft you cannot place implants. A discussion with your surgeon and dentist is in order... They know best the answers to the above questions. ...Read more
