A maxillary sinus floor augmentation procedure (also known as a sinus-lift) is a surgical procedure performed by an appropriately trained Maxillofacial Surgeon to increase the amount of bone in the posterior (back side) maxilla, or upper jaw bone. It’s normally done in upper second premolars and/or molar areas where there is a maxillary sinus extent.
While there may be a number of reasons for wanting a greater volume of bone in the posterior maxilla, the most common reason is to prepare the site for the future placement of dental implants due to insufficient bone height to place long enough dental implant .
Sinus augmentation (sinus lift) is performed when the floor of the sinus is too close to an area where dental implants are to be placed. This procedure is performed to ensure a secure place for the implants while protecting the sinus. a lot of factors leads to lowering of the sinus like age, long-term tooth loss without the required treatment, periodontal disease, trauma etc. Sinus Lift is an effective way to deal with this issue.
I would recommend Dr. Kathuria's Dental Clinic to anyone living in, or visiting Delhi.
Very good and professional customer service, very competent dentists and staff. Received zoom whitening and two large fillings from Dr Sween, very happy with the results.
The time I provided for the dental implants was not only restricted to a number of days but it was also confined to the needs of my travel schedules. Dr. Kathuria went out of his work schedule to help me! I was uncertain and stressed out about the whole procedure but Dr. Puneet Kathuria's reassurances saved me from the nightmarish thoughts of dental-work disasters. Two months post dental implants, I have not experienced a single problem with the implants. Today, I have found back the confidence to laugh. Thank you Dr. Kathuria! Jai Bharat! Jai Dr. Puneet Kathuria!
Facilities and Services available in this clinic are of highest standard. I am blessed with their lovely environment and nature of their treatment during my short duration. Doctors and Staff are friendly in nature and the level of hygienic is well satisfied. Now, I am happy with my teeth. Thank you so much..
