Tired of going each summer missing teeth and unable to get implants because your upper jaw doesn’t have enough bone? Are you struggling with missing teeth? Do you miss out on your favorite foods or have to hide your smile because of embarrassment? Have you been told in the past your sinus membrane is too close to the upper jaw for implants? Don’t let your missing teeth hold you back any longer. Sinus lift Surgery in NYC is your solution. At New York Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Dr. Stein can perform a sinus lift to create an anchor for the future implants. He can also move your sinus membrane upward to create enough space.

When a tooth is missing in the mouth, the teeth around it can collapse. Unfortunately, the missing tooth can cause a loss in jawbone density. Jawbone deterioration can also occur with periodontal disease, the bacteria eats away at the tissue and eventually damages the jaw bone.   Misalignments of the jaw can cause a loss as well.

A sinus lift in New York is performed with a small incision to the jawbone, giving access to lift the sinus membrane on the other side of the window. Dr. Stein uses a bone graft to create the anchor. After about 6 to 9 months, the patient can receive a dental implant in NY with sufficient jaw bone density.  The long wait gives time for growth and for strength to be gained. Increased strength, decreases the chances of dental implants in NY needing to be replaced.

Dr. Mark Stein, NY oral surgeon, is one of the few oral surgeons in the country to use INFUSE®, an advanced new jawbone grafting material that uses a special protein to promote jawbone growth.  The INFUSE® system prevents the need to harvest bone from another location in the body. With the elimination of this step, the patient is exposed to less anesthesia. The complications of the sinus lift surgery are also decreased because one less incision is being made (no bone removal). Dr. Stein may also use the patient’s own blood to assist healing.

It’ll be worth the wait for your dental implants. They will look natural, be a permanent solution, and they’ll prevent jawbone erosion. At New York Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Dr. Stein and his staff look forward to meeting all your sinus lift surgery needs.
