You may not be a good candidate for dental implants if you lack enough space between your sinus cavity and arch to safely place the implant, but a surgical sinus lift may be able to help. At SEDA Dental of Pompano Beach, we will get you ready to receive an implant with sinus lift surgery. Insufficient jawbone height, poor bone quality, or sinuses that may be too near to put an implant are reasons why you might require a sinus lift, also referred to as sinus augmentation surgery. The sinus floor is lifted to ensure an implant will be easy to place. Schedule an appointment with a member of our experienced dental team at our practice in Pompano Beach, FL to find out more about dental implants and sinus lift surgery.

"Without a doubt the absolute best experience possible. I was referred by a friend, thank God I was. From the very 1st phone call, Asly was tremendous, got my son in right away. My son for various reasons had rotted teeth. After spending a fortune on bridges, extractions, etc.. no other dentist leveled with me that he Had week teeth that would continue to get worse. He was in such severe pain for so long. Infections, absesses. Rot. I decided the most economical and permanent solution that I could afford was total extraction and dentures. I took him for quotes, typical xray,Nonpersonal attention, just another mouth.Took him to Seda $4000 less. And the caring office manager, Fernanda worked with me for over an hour, applying for financing. She finally set me up with a payment plan orI would have been unable to help my son.After explaining my situation they didn't even charge for his consultation. His dentist Dr. Hanna Butenko was beyond fantastic. All other quotes were pull all teeth at once. Stick In the permanent denture, with putty, then 6 months later come back to see how his jaw adjusted and re-putty, and all money immediately. Wow, Dr. Hanna, saw the horrible mess in my sons mouth. Set up 3 separate appts. One week apart, she saidIt would be way too painful to do all at onceAnd because of the extent of damage some Would be very difficult extractions. And may I say what a knowledgable caring lady. Well three weeks later, I'm sitting at lunch,Final teeth coming out as I write this. And he will be leaving today with his tempatoryDentures, he would not go out because of his teeth. Cant wait to see him really smile again.Three months from now he goes back, they see how his jaws have adjusted AND make him his permanent set! The reason this is so long and detailed is because, I know due to todays culture and poor choices, many young men have rotted hurting teeth, and think there's no answer. Seda also offers all the other options, butDont give up, our choice worked for us, and was affordable. Fernanda & Asly are like family, make my 29 year old son & I feel welcome and special. They know us by name and they should be proud of there courteous. Fun yet professionall manner. Lastly, I cannot Say enough about Dr. Butenko. She comes out of the back to personally see me each visitNot to mention, you will never see 3 more Pretty, really caring and a joy to see each timeYoung wmen.They treat you like family!!!And I havent even met Dr. Hill yet, who my friend said was exceptional. Ther is no other place I will ever go. My other son is next!!!They get 5 out of 5. Not a fair scale, really10 out of 5 stars."- G.K. / Google / Jun 20, 2019
Nominees for a sinus augmentation may have insufficient space in the top jaw to place a dental implant if the sinuses are excessively big or too near the jawbone. During your appointment at our facility, a digital x-ray will be used to measure your sinuses and jaw and ascertain whether moving the sinuses and/or a bone graft will be a proper plan of action to prepare you for an implant.
What To Expect
Sinus lift augmentation is an advanced surgical process that is completed at our office by a member of our team. If necessary, a bone graft will be prepped. A surgical incision will be placed in the soft tissues located in the back of the mouth. The gums will be lifted to show the jawbone. The bone graft, if needed, will be put in place before the sinuses are pushed higher and further from the jaw. Lastly, the incision inside the gums will be stitched.
Following your sinus surgery, you could be written a prescription for pain relievers and antibiotics that will assist you through your recovery. A member of our team will also speak with you about how to best care for your incisions by giving you detailed instructions at your appointment. You may need to schedule another appointment about a week following your sinus surgery to remove the stitches. The bone graft may require a few months to heal until an implant may be scheduled.
For patients with insurance, we'll speak to your insurance to ascertain your policy and calculate your personal expenses. If you do not have dental insurance, then we can speak with you regarding payment options and provide you with more information on low-interest financing.
Sinus Lift Surgery
If you are eligible for a sinus lift, preparing the jawbone is vital to the achievement of the implant. Dental implants require good support in the jawbone until they adhere to the bone, and a sinus lift procedure will continue to keep the implant from colliding with your nasal cavity. We ask you to call our practice in Pompano Beach, FL to schedule an appointment to learn more.
