What is Sinus Lift Dental Surgery?
A sinus lift is a cutting-edge surgical procedure that facilitates dental implant placement by adding bone to the upper jaw.
Some candidates for dental implants lack enough bone height or density in the upper jaw. As a result, their jaws can’t support dental implants.
Luckily, sinus lift surgery can create more space for the placement of dental implants by lifting the sinus membrane upward and placing bone graft material beneath it (into the space between the jawbone and sinus floor).
Sinus lifts are usually performed by oral surgeons or periodontists who have received specialized training in this procedure.
Symeou Dental Center Nicosia has a highly experienced team of oral surgeons and periodontists who perform sinus augmentation surgery with precision and care. Rely on our expertise for long-lasting dental implant results and a beautiful smile!
Bone Grafting for Sinus Lift
Imagine your upper jaw as the foundation of a house, where sometimes, additional support is needed to ensure stability for future enhancements.
In the dental world, when there’s not enough bone to place implants in the upper jaw, ‘sinus lift’ comes into play. But what’s next after lifting the sinus? That’s where bone grafting steps in.
In essence, bone grafting for a sinus lift involves adding bone material to the existing upper jaw, particularly in the area near your molars and premolars. Think of it as bolstering the foundation of that house.
This process ensures a secure environment for dental implants, making them long-lasting and reliable.
Our expertise in dental surgery guarantees a meticulous and informed approach, ensuring you achieve a revitalized smile built on solid ground.

Dental Implants and Sinus Lift
Following sinus lift and bone grafting, the augmented bone provides a robust and stable foundation for the placement of dental implants.
These implants are precisely inserted into the newly fortified bone, promoting a seamless integration with the natural jawbone. This process ensures a secure and enduring anchor for prosthetic dentistry, including dental crowns or bridges, culminating in a fully restored and highly functional smile.
With a focus on precision and patient well-being, our expert dentists and oral surgeons in Cyprus can perform complex procedures like sinus lifts, delivering exceptional results that enhance both your oral health and confidence.
What is Prosthetic Dentistry?
Prosthetic dentistry is a specialized branch for restoring missing or damaged teeth and oral structures by designing, creating, and fitting artificial replacements.
Dental prosthetics include dentures, bridges, crowns, and dental implants.
The primary goals of prosthetic dentistry are to restore the functionality of the bite, improve oral health, and enhance the aesthetic appearance of the patient’s teeth and smile.
In general, prosthetic dentistry involves a combination of dental expertise and innovative technology to replace or enhance teeth, ensuring a radiant smile and functional mouth. By using advanced materials and techniques, this field ensures that patients can regain their ability to chew, speak, and smile with confidence.
What is Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery?
Oral and maxillofacial surgery is a specialized field within dentistry that addresses complex conditions affecting the face, mouth, jaw, and neck.
Surgeons in this discipline are trained to perform procedures ranging from tooth extractions to intricate jaw reconstructions, like sinus lift, and corrective surgeries for congenital disabilities or injuries.
Our oral surgeons’ expertise covers a broad spectrum, from diagnosing and treating facial pain and TMJ disorders to removing impacted teeth and placing dental implants.
With a blend of dental, medical, and surgical knowledge, oral and maxillofacial surgeons at Symeou Dental Center Nicosia provide comprehensive care for patients, ensuring that patients’ functional and aesthetic outcomes are achieved.
Anesthesia for Sinus Lift
Frequently Asked Questions
Are sinus lifts painful?
Sinus lift is carried out under anesthesia to ensure comfort throughout the surgery. While you may experience mild discomfort or swelling afterward, prescribed pain medications can help. Our dentists will provide comprehensive post-operative instructions to ensure a smooth and successful recovery.
How long does a sinus lift last?
A sinus lift procedure establishes a durable foundation for dental implants. By following proper care and maintenance, the results of a sinus lift can endure a lifetime.
How much should a sinus lift cost?
The cost of a sinus lift may fluctuate based on factors such as case complexity or additional procedures required. You will receive a comprehensive cost estimate tailored to your needs during your consultation with our dental team.
Can you breathe better after a sinus lift?
A sinus lift primarily aims to increase bone volume in the upper jaw and is not directly targeted at improving nasal breathing. Nevertheless, in certain instances, the procedure may indirectly affect sinus drainage and breathing, leading to potential improvements.
Are short implants better than a sinus lift?
Whether short implants or a sinus lift is more appropriate depends on various factors, such as available bone height and quality. Short implants might be suitable for cases with limited bone height, but a comprehensive assessment by our dental team is essential to determine the best treatment plan.
What will I look like after sinus surgery?
After a sinus lift procedure, you may experience mild facial swelling and bruising, but these are temporary and typically resolve within a few days to a week. Our dental team will provide post-operative care guidelines to alleviate discomfort and reduce swelling during recovery.
What are the major complications of sinus surgery?
While complications from sinus surgery are infrequent, they may include infection, bleeding, or sinus membrane damage. Choosing an experienced dental professional like Symeou Dental Center Nicosia and adhering to post-operative care instructions can minimize these risks. Our dental team will closely monitor your recovery and promptly address any concerns or complications that may arise.
How do you clean your nose after a sinus lift?
Following a sinus lift surgery, our dental team will provide detailed post-operative instructions, including guidelines for nasal hygiene. This may include gently rinsing your nose with a saline solution or following your dentist’s specific instructions.
