Dental Sinus Lift Procedure: What Is It?

Dental Sinus Lift Procedure

A sinus lift, or augmentation in Turkey is a surgical procedure that increases the height of the upper jawbone to provide sufficient bone volume to accommodate dental implants.

This dental procedure is usually performed in the case of bone deficiency in the upper jaw to support implants.

A sinus lift in Turkey is carried out under local anaesthesia, and after treatment, the patient may be given a course of antibiotics to prevent infection.

What Is the Sinus?

The sinus is an air-filled cavity in the skull located behind the cheekbones and forehead.

Its functions are as follows:

Normally, the paranasal sinuses are filled with air and lined with a thin mucous membrane. However, when inflamed or infected, the mucous membrane can swell and produce mucus, blocking the sinuses and causing pain and pressure. This condition is known as sinusitis.

Sinus lift dental treatment at VK Smile Studio is usually performed as follows:

Sinus Lifting Types

The choice of dental method depends on the individual anatomical characteristics of the patient, the condition of the bone tissue and the experience of the surgeon.

Closed Sinus Lifting

Closed Sinus Lifting

A closed sinus augmentation is performed through a small incision in the gum without the need to open the membrane.

This method is suitable for cases where the bone height is at least 8 mm and the membrane is thin and elastic. It is less invasive, provides faster healing and has a lower risk of complications.

Open Sinus Lifting

Open Sinus Lifting

An open sinus augmentation involves creating a window or opening in the maxillary sinus to directly access the membrane. The membrane is then carefully lifted to create additional space for bone material.

This method is used in cases where the bone height is less than 8 mm, the membrane is thick and less elastic, or when it is necessary to raise the membrane to a significant height.

What to Consider After Sinus Augmentation?

Recommendations after sinus lift dental treatment are as follows:


Contraindications to this treatment are the following:

  • active infections in the surgical area;
  • severe systemic diseases such as cardiovascular disease or diabetes;
  • bleeding disorders;
  • recent radiation therapy to the head and neck;
  • anatomical features that make surgery too risky, such as very thin bones or the proximity of important structures.

Complications after this procedure are rare, but it is crucial to be aware of the following possible risks:

  • bleeding;
  • infection;
  • damage to surrounding structures such as tooth roots or nerves;
  • insufficient increase in bone tissue;
  • rupture of the membrane;
  • numbness in the surgical area.

You can expect the following healing process:

  • first few days: swelling, pain and discomfort;
  • one to two weeks: gradual decrease in pain and swelling;
  • four to six weeks: complete healing of the membrane and disappearance of discomfort;
  • several months: formation and integration of new bone tissue.

The duration of this dental procedure depends on the procedure’s complexity and the technique used. In general, the surgery takes one to two hours per side of the upper jaw.

This treatment is considered a safe dental procedure. However, as with any surgical intervention, there are certain complications and risks, although they are rare.

Swelling usually peaks within the first two to three days after surgery. It should gradually decrease over the next few weeks.

Most patients notice a significant reduction in swelling within one to two weeks. However, slight swelling may persist for several months until the new bone tissue is fully formed.

Yes, in some cases, it is possible to perform a sinus augmentation and dental implants at the same time. This is called one-stage immediate loading implantation.

One-stage dental implantation is not suitable for all patients. The procedure success depends on the following:

  • bone tissue quantity and quality;
  • anatomy characteristics;
  • general health of the patient.
