Is sinus lift on upper molar always necessary for dental implant?

No. Upper molars are close to the sinus and sinus floor. If the sinus is big, then you will need to get sinus lift for the implant placement. You would need to get an x-ray done to determine. Please send me your x-rays for second opinion http://my. Setmore. Com/bookingpage/72b8c781-a64f-45c9-9314-934abdd25118.
Varies. If you have enough bone to place an implant then a sinus lift is not necessary but your implant surgeon wll decide the proper length he or she is comfortable placing. Implants come in different lengths.
When needed only. A sinus lift is done when there is not enough bone height in the upper jaw, or the sinuses are too close to the jaw, for dental implants to be placed. It is a selective procedure.
Always - No. It depends on your particular situation. There are different systems available - co-axis (keystone) implants, short implants (bicon) that might allow for placement without a sinus lift. Your oral surgeon would best be able to advise you. Hope this helps.

Docs can you explain, is sinus lift on upper molar always necessary for dental implant?

NO. If there is sufficient bone present, no lift necessary. See a prosthodontist for advice. Good luck.
Depends. It depends on how much bone you have and the quality of the bone. Since the upper molar areas are usually type 3 or 4 bone (soft); it's best to use an implant which will offer a sufficient amount of surface area with good primary stability. So if the sinus has significant pneumatization, a sinus lift can be recommend for dental implant placement.
When support needed. Your upper back teeth have a hollow area above them called a sinus. If an implant were place in that area it would be like punching through dry wall. A sinus lift of granular bone, placed from the side, or chased vertically with an implant acts as a back stop between the boney roof of your mouth and the rubber balloon sinus membrane. When healed (6 month) it provides the solid stud 4 implant.
Not always. The requirement is if the sinus is low enough in the alveolar bone to prevent an implant of appropriate length to be placed.
No, not always. It depends on how much bone you have between the floor of your sinus and the inside of your mouth. If the bone is thick enough to support the implant than you do not need a sinus lift. If the bone is too thin then it will be needed. Every person is different. You need to trust your surgeon to make the correct decision for your circumstances.

I am having a dental implant to replace a back molar. The dentist says I need a sinus lift. Can I return to work the next day or two?

Yes. You should be able to return to work the next day. This is a very routine procedure. Talk to your surgeon and get all of your questions answered before your surgery day.
I think so... Most patients do not have a protracted recovery for this procedure. If you are really concerned, schedule the procedure for a friday, and you will have the weekend to recover.....
Yes. Once you do a sinus lift you are going to be swollen there is some discomfort best to take 2 days off you will experience bruisng.
Most can and do. However, many factors play a role regarding this issue. One of the most important ones would be the type of job you have. For instance, someone with a very strenuous physical job would generally require more time to recoup than one with a desk job. It's always best to discuss this issue with your own surgeon.
Sinus tint. After bone augmentation with sinus lift or sinus tint, you should be able to go back to work as long as you don't have any complications. Hopefully, your sinus lining was not perforated, and your dentist was able to show you a nice ct scan for the grafting. If all went well, and you have no sinus issues, you should be fine.

Dental implant, bone graft and sinus lift for upper left molar - questions for people with experience., what to do?

What to do? Without personally examining you and your x-rays we can't advise you what to do or not to do. What you describe is state of the art dentistry and something I would do in my own mouth if needed. You must find a dentist whom you trust and follow his\her advice after discussing treatment alternatives and prognosis of each. If necessary seek 2nd or 3rd opinion until you feel confident in your decision.
Do it! If the adjacent teeth do not needs crowns or already have crowns, then the above procedure is the best bet for you. Cutting down healthy teeth to support a bridge is not longer needed with the grafting techniques available. Hope this is what you were asking..
Same procedure. I had a surgical extraction and bone graft for an upper left molar on myself last week. Membrane will be removed next week. Very little discomfort and took no pain meds.

Hi doctors, was just wondering what is an osteotome sinus lift for dental implant?

Through the socket. It's where an instrument called an osteotome "lifts' the top of the socket, creating room for a bone graft. Much more conservative than an open sinus lift.
Newer technique. The technique is used when the depth of the jaw is enough for placing a stable implant and only little extra bone (1-3mm) is needed in order to prevent sinus opening or perforation. These techniques have been shown to greatly increase the success rate of dental implant placement in the maxilla.
Crestal Sinus Lift. If there is inadequate bone for placement of an implant beneath the maxillary sinus, a sinus lift can be performed. A lateral wall approach involves creating a window in the wall of the sinus to place the graft material. The crestal approach involves using an osteotome in the site of the desired implant placement to elevate the bony floor of the sinus to allow placement of the graft.

I'm wondering what is an osteotome sinus lift for dental implant?

Bone elevation. The instrument is like a punch but with a cup-shaped end. As the osteotome is tapped into the bone, it condenses and carries the bone against the sinus lining, as it creates the site for placing the implant. This elevates the lining and provides a longer space of bone for the implant. Think of it as a sinus bump, where the bone creates a nice bump in the sinus. See the prosthodontist for advice.
Sinus Lift. As we age, it is not uncommon for bone to disappear in the upper jaw, especially in the regions below the maxillary sinus. As a way to rebuild this bone, a sinus lift procedure is performed. There are 2 ways to do this procedure: osteotome method and lateral wall method. There are advantages and disadvantages to both. Having a consult with an experienced implantologist is important.
Osteotome sinus lift. The technique is less invasive, less complicate and the treatment can be achieved with a single surgery. However, it is not enough data and yet more cases and longer follow-up are warranted to perform osteotome sinus lift routinely. The the classic lateral window opening for sinus augmentation technique is here to stay.

Is a cbct or an x-ray good enough for a dentist to know if there is a need for a sinus lift in prep for dental implants (I'd go for a cbct anyway)?

Yes. The sinus can be in the path of an implant. An x-ray can be enough to determine if the sinus lift will be necessary. The cbct would provide more information.
Depends. Much depends on the individual (you) and the degree of risk you are willing to accept. Also, the experience and training of the surgeon is critical. A 3d scan is optimal, but not always necessary as some panographic images are very revealing when the situation is obvious (significant bone loss). Also, the restorative Dentist must be part of this. See a Prosthodontist for opinion. Good Luck.
Of course. Dentist can use of 3-D-CBCT imaging during the implant planning process or surgical phase can aid inserting implants around the maxillary sinus, or assist in surgery where the maxillary sinus is augmented with bone or PRP for sinus lift.

Can you tell me about got a sinus lift for dental implants and how that go?

See below. I'm not sure what your question is did you have a sinus lift? Are you interested in information? What does how that go mean.
Sinus lift. A sinus lift is an intraoral procedure to raise the floor of the sinus in order to establish more room for a dental implant. See an oral surgeon or a periodontist who routinely performs that procedure for more detail regarding the actual surgery, prognosis and what to expect postoperatively.
Sounds scary but not. Your upper back teeth have a hollow area above them called a sinus. If an implant were place in that area it would be like punching through dry wall. A sinus lift of granular bone (placed from the side, or chased vertically with an implant acts as a back stop between the boney roof of your mouth and the rubber balloon sinus membrane. When healed (6 month) it provides the solid stud 4 implant.

Which type of dental specialists would be able to diagnose the need, or not, for an upper molar sinus lift?

OTOHNS or OMFS. An otolaryngologist that specializes in sinus surgery or an oral maxillofacial surgeon should be able to diagnose and discuss the procedure with you.
Sinus lift dentist? Any dentist trained and who routinely places dental implants should be able to diagnose the need for a sinus lift. Typically they would be a periodontist, oral surgeon or prosthodontist.
General dentist, Oral surgeon, periodontist, endodontist, prosthodontist are dental specialties that are placing dental implants. These specialists are placing dental implants and have the expertise to diagnose sinus lift procedure according to cone beam ct.

The oral maxillo dental surgeon suggests sinus lift for an upper molar. The prosthodontist does not recommend the intensive procedure at all. Hmm?

Different focus each. Oral surgeon extracts teeth/places implants. Prostho replaces the chewing parts or crowns of the teeth. If omfs recommends sinus lift to have enough bone for implant, it will likely be a better platform for future dental work. If prostho recommends no lift (no implant?), then talk to your gp for clarification/2nd opinion. At 59, 'average' bridge life 12-15 years; you til 85+! do the math!
Depends. Depends upon the end result you want to achieve. If you want individual teeth then the sinus graft will allow implants to replace missing teeth. If not then bridgework is a way of replacing missing teeth. You need to review the pros and cons of each procedure and see which one is right for you.
The best dentistry. Is generally obtained when the entire team of quality dentists agree on the treatment plan. I would do two things. First, have each dentist explain to you in detail why he\she recommends their approach. Have each of them explain to you each option with pros, cons and prognosis. See what makes sense to you. Second, find a surgeon (os or perio) and restorative dentist (gd or pros.) who agree on plan.
Do it. The surgeon is responsible for assessing the adequacy of bone for an implant. If he feels such a procedure is necessary (and very common by the way) then I would ask the surgeon why he advises it but would likely go with his opinion over the prosthodontist. It is the surgeon who is placing the implant not the prosthodontist.
Why? Why does the prosthodontist object? You should be seeing a team of doctors who are all on the same page. Each doctor should respect the opinions of the other experts.
Sinus lift. That sounds like a discussion for implant placement? I have placed implants with vertical bone at 5mm there are certain implants designed for that purpose. Get a second opinion.
Team Approach. Your dental team should be made up of dentists who can actually treat you. Third and fourth and fifth opinions over the internet are not helpful. What does the prosthodontist recommend? A denture? Many factors go into this decision, including height of bone and crown/root ratio. Have your team consult with each other and have them come to a decision.
