Is implantation on you but your jawbone is too thin? Then a bone structure in the form of a sinus lift in preparation for the implant is necessary. The sinus lift is used to thicken a too thin maxillary sinus floor, usually to be able to then work with dentures, such as dental implants.
A distinction is made between the internal (closed), external (open) sinus lift and Balloon-Lift-Control system. The balloon procedure is another innovative sinus lift variant.
The internal (closed) Sinuslift variant is the smaller and less complex sinus floor design variant. If there is a slight height deficit of the bone, this form of sinus lift can be used to gain a few millimeters in height of the bone.
The external (open) sinus lift is the more complex sinus lift variant and requires a more invasive procedure. The external sinus lift becomes necessary for larger defects of the bone with too little residual bone height. As soon as several millimeters of bone are needed for a stable anchoring of the implants in length, your dentist will choose this variant for long-term success.
The Balloon Lift Control System (BLC) is an innovative technique that has been specially developed to replace the maxillary sinus mucosa. The minimally invasive, very safe and easy-to-learn procedure is based on a fluid-filled balloon catheter. One speaks also of a balloon-assisted sinus lift. Less well known is the name Transkretale Antro Membrano Plastie.
The sinus lift is already possible at a price from €1,500. Please send us your inquiry with a current x-ray image to get a detailed estimate cost.

The treatment is always under a local anesthetic. Fear patients who so wish can also be put into sleep narcosis for the duration of the operation. There are different methods of sinus lift procedure.
The choice of the appropriate method for the bone structure of the jaw is determined in particular by the nature of the bone defect. The jawbone may be too narrow or too low. In addition, it is crucial at which point in the mouth (upper jaw, lower jaw, front or side tooth area) the bone deficit exists.
The healing time is seamlessly connected to the bone structure. When sinus lift for the implant is completed, it will be used after healing in due course. Frequently, implants and sinus lift are also performed simultaneously.
Implant Direct: prelude to the Ladies Nights
The implant manufacturer Implant Direct invited dentists and implantologists to the Ladies Night in Dusseldorf yesterday. During the two-hour event, oral surgeon Dr. Friederike Ratschow, MSc, on "Sinus lift - When and how?".
The focus of her presentation was on structured treatment in the difficult maxillary posterior region. The implantologist described the procedure for lateral and internal sinus lift on the basis of many illustrative and interesting cases. "More and more patients come to us in the practice and want solid dentures. We can not avoid dealing with the topic of bone augmentation and sinus lift if we want to fulfill their wishes! "
A clear recommendation from Ratschow was to have a DVT scan taken during preoperative planning and diagnostics. Some anatomical peculiarities could only be diagnosed as follows: "If, for example, the angle between the buccal and medial wall of the sinus is very small, ruptures of the Schneiderian membrane can occur more quickly," warned Ratschow. This can only be diagnosed using a 3D image.
Sinus lift has more than 95 percent chance of success. Even in the event that a septum complicates the procedure, Ratschow had a clear recommendation: "If you come across a septum in the external access, you can proceed with the help of two windows. Alternatively, a kidney-shaped window can be prepared. Piezosurgery reduces the risk of membrane perforation and is recommended here for the preparation. "Finally, Ratschow still had good news for the participants:" The chances of success in sinus lift (lateral as well as internal) are over 95 percent. "
"The feedback from the participants shows that our concept is accepted. One can imagine that there is always self-doubt, if you go a new way. But now we can say: a successful kick-off for our Ladies Night event series in Germany", says Manuela Lutiger, Head of Marketing at Implant Direct.
