Indirect sinus lift procedure
In this we do an opening from the extracted tooth socket or the through the bone osteotomy we did for implant site and uplift the sinus floor and the place bone grafting material and PRF. The space is then closed and left for healing – this procedure we generally do when we are doing immediate implants along with sinus lift.
Direct sinus lift procedure.
Direct sinus lift procedure
In this we open the soft tissue gum flap from the side in between the cheeks and the gums and then we expose the bone. An opening is made through the bone into the sinus cavity, but taking a great care to ensure the membrane lining of the sinus is not punctures.
The lining of the sinus cavity is then gently lifted away from the bone and space above the bone is filled with bone graft material and PRF. The wound is then closed and left for healing.
In next six months’ time ( in general cases ) to nine months ( in extreme cases ) the new bone formation will take place providing a secure anchorage for the dental implant placement.
You could expect some swelling and soreness around the area for a day or two following your sinus surgery.
During this period, you need to avoid sneezing and blowing your nose as it could lead to dislodgement of the graft material.
A single sinus lift usually starts from 35,000 to 50,000 INR so if you need to get sinus lift for both the sides then the cost will come around 70,000 to 1,00,000 INR.
The cost goes up in cases where too much of bone graft material along with bone graft putty has to be used.
