Upper East Side Sinus Lift
Our Upper East Side sinus lift
, also called a sinus augmentation, is the procedure that makes it possible to get an upper dental implant even if your sinus wall is currently too thin and weak to properly support one. At the office of Mitchell Bloom, you can always feel assured that oral surgery is performed with the utmost of expertise and gentle care.
Many people are excited about the prospect of dental implants, since they have benefits that are simply not possible with bridges or dentures when it comes to replacing missing teeth. And unlike those old-fashioned restorations, implants are anchored into your bone structure, with a root, just like any of your natural teeth. The premise is that one part of the implant, the titanium post, is surgically placed in your sinus wall, where the bone tissue grows around it and fuses with it over the course of a few months. But if your sinus is not up to the necessary standards, you have a complication. Fortunately, our Upper East Side sinus lift eliminates that complication. Our implant specialist takes tissue from another part of your body (or from a bone tissue bank), and transplants it into your sinus wall. Once there, new bone tissue is spurred to grow around it, leading to a stronger overall bone, and one that will be sufficient for your new implant. If you're wondering if our Upper East Side sinus lift
is worth the effort, the best way we can answer that is by pointing out that implants can last a lifetime with proper care. Furthermore, they don't affect your surrounding teeth, nor do they require messy adhesives. You can speak, laugh, and chew even the toughest foods without any concern whatsoever.
Just call our office today and let us schedule you for an examination and consultation to see if you need a sinus lift procedure.
