Our 03802 sinus lift is a procedure that makes it possible for you to have an upper dental implant if you had been tested for one and the determination was that your sinus wall was not up to the necessary standards. At Lafayette Dental Care, this surgery is done with the expert care that we are known for, so you can be confident about the outcome.
The process of performing our 03802 sinus lift is based in taking bone tissue that is from another part of your body, or obtained from a donor bank, and then transplanting it into your sinus wall. New and stronger bone will be spurred to grow around it, and what was previously too thin a bone structure will now be suitable for the placement of a dental implant. The entire time period from the time the surgery is completed until the implant can be started can be up to 9 months, but that is at the high end. Many people are ready after just a few months. Any time that you have to wait is well worth it because a dental implant is a remarkably beneficial and durable tooth replacement. It is completely free standing. There are no messy adhesives needed, and your other teeth are not affected. And because of the construction of an implant, and the advantages of reliability that our 03802 sinus lift makes possible, you can expect to get a full lifetime out of your implant, provided that you care for them properly.
What you should do is contact our office right now and let us set up an appointment for you to come in for a consultation, examination, and testing. Find out if your sinus wall is sufficient for an implant now, or whether you need our surgery to augment your existing bone tissue. Either way, you are well on your way to getting back your full smile.
