A key to implant success is the quantity and quality of the bone where the implant is to be placed. The upper back jaw has traditionally been one of the most difficult areas to successfully place dental implants due to insufficient bone quantity and quality and the close proximity to the sinus. If you’ve lost bone in that area due to reasons such as periodontal disease or tooth loss, you may be left without enough bone to place implants.

Sinus Lift surgery can help correct this problem by raising the sinus floor and developing bone for the placement of dental implants. Several techniques can be used to raise the sinus and allow for new bone to form.

Sinus Lift Cost

As of 2017 Invisalign® cost starts at $2,500. However, the average cost is between $3,000 and $4,800. A simple Invisalign® case (a minor teeth movement case that requires few months of treatment) costs about $2,800 or slightly less and $3,000-$4,800 for a full case in which the majority of teeth are involved. Invisalign® treatment can last as little as 3 months to up to one year or more depending on the involvement of your bite alignment and crooked teeth condition. In general, our cost of Invisalign® is actually quite comparable with wire Sinus Lift.

We are a certified and licensed Invisalign® provider. The most obvious advantage of Invisalign® orthodontic treatment is cosmetic. The aligners are transparent, therefore much more difficult to notice than traditional wire Sinus Lift. This makes Invisalign® popular among adults who want to straighten their teeth without the look of traditional metal Sinus Lift.

In addition, the aligners are much more comfortable than Sinus Lift. Due to the removable nature of the aligners, food can be consumed without the discomfort of metallic Sinus Lift. Clinically, aligners avoid many of the side effects of traditional wire Sinus Lift in most cases.

“On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and pain.

But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure.

Sinus Lift Treatment Variations

There are many ways of treating patients depending on budget, preferences, medical conditions, doctor’s opinion, bone quality, infections, treatment lengths.

On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and pain.

What Materials do we use

If you are interested in placing Implants in the upper maxilia, a Surgeon must take into consideration the levels of bone beneath the sinus. If there is not enough good bone quality then a Sinus Lift would be needed. Sinus Lifts are done by making an incision in the bone around the Sinus, Lifting the Sinus membrane from the Sinus floor and then packing this area with the amount of bone graft needed. The area is then covered with a membrane and sewed up for a following period of osseointegration. This period lasts roughly 6 months or so, however specific indications from the surgeon will let you know how long your osseointegration period should be. There are different techniques to Sinus Lifting procedures and each one would depend on the cases unique situation and what the desired outcome for the restoration would be. Techniques such as platelet rich plasma transfusions are sometimes used to promote tissue regeneration and healing time after similar surgeries.

With the different techniques available for surgeons, it is possible in some cases to place Implants immediately after the Sinus Lift surgery.

Immediate Implant placement with Sinus Lifting

The ability to place Implants at the time of the Sinus Lift depends on the amount of good bone levels between the Sinus floor and the crest of the bone. Normally, around 5 mm of bone is needed for the surgeon to be able to find primary stability for the implant. If the surgeon cannot find primary stability then the Implant has a high risk of failure and/or will run the risk of poor angulation for the restorative phase. The advantage of placing the Implant along with the Sinus Lift procedure, is that the patient will not require another surgery in that area and the Osseo integration time is reduced.

Delayed Implant placement with Sinus Lifting

If the bone loss is too significant for a Surgeon to find primary stability for the Implant, then the Sinus Lift procedure will be done followed by an Osseointegration period of up to 6 months. Once the grafted material has matured, the patient will come back for the placement of the Implant in this area, which in turn will need to Osseointegrate before being able to be restored.

Sinus Lift FAQ

The average length of stay in Cancun is between 7 and 14 days. If your procedure doesn’t involve multiple extractions or bone-grafting then your stay will be shorter than those that do require these procedures to allow for adequate recovery time.

Our Dentists recommend that any extractions are performed by us in our state-of-the-art clinic. The success of an All of 4 procedure depends on preserving the maximum amount of bone in the jaw, something that can be compromised during extractions that are not undertaken carefully. As part of our commitment to patient care we would always prefer to provide all procedures so that we can assure the highest quality results for you.

Yes, and you should stop smoking before you come to Mexico to attend for your procedure. As well as the well-known risks to your general health, smoking is associated with a wide variety of oral health problems including tooth loss, bone loss, periodontal disease, reduced oral blood flow and implant failures. Because of the poor outcomes associated with smoking and implant procedures we won’t be able to treat you at our clinic in Cancun until you have signed a waiver stating that you are a non-smoker. We realise that for many people this can be a difficult addiction to break and we will support you with this including providing stop smoking advice and even prescription medication to help you if required.

Not necessarily. In order for us to be able to perform an All on 4 you will need an A1C level below 8.0. Please ask for a test through your regular physician or contact us for more information.

In most cases you will still be a good candidate for dental implants, however we assess each patient on a case-by-case basis. Please let us know if you are taking bisphosphonates and we will be able to advise you more specifically.

Traditional implant technology meant that many people have been told they are not a suitable candidate. With our new All on 4 procedure we find that we are now able to offer implants to almost 90% of patients who had previously been told they were not a viable candidate. Our All on 4 system uses the front area of the jaw which actually contains the densest bone. The unique way that the implants are angled means a much less invasive procedure with no need to enter the sinus cavity. If you have been told in the past that traditional implants aren’t available to you contact us today for the very latest advice and information.

We do, but at our Cancun clinic we use Conscious Sedation. Our aneasthesiologsts provide a perfect balance of sedative and and pain blocking medication to keep you awake and responsive, yet deeply relaxed and totally pain-free. This type of skilled sedation is hugely beneficial to you as it has remarkably short recovery time, and you will be able to carry on with your day soon after the procedure.

The All on 4 implant procedure has a higher success rate than other implant procedures, thanks to to the unique process used. Top quality dentists will ensure you have a thorough after-care advice program to help you to keep your new implants in perfect condition and to care for the implantation sites while final healing is occurring. They will also prescribe medication including antibiotics to support your healing. If you follow the after-care advice then risks of complications like infection is minimal.

The biggest risk comes from a poorly performed procedure itself. At our clinic in Cancun we see several patients each month who have suffered due to visiting an inexperienced or unqualified dentist with too little practical experience of modern implant techniques. The most important advice is to make sure that the clinic and dentist you choose to perform your procedure is modern and well-equipped, with fully accredited personnel, and most importantly a long track record of succesful implant procedures and client testimonials.

Sinus Lift Treatment Alternatives

Short Implants

Short Implants Mexico

We use the Bicon System of Short Implants in order to take advantage of minimal bone levels and avoid vital structures such as the sinus or mental foramen, which usually require multiple visits.

Zygomatic Implants

Zigomatic Implants Mexico

Zygomatic Implants are Implants that are much longer in length than conventional Implants (40 mm – 50 mm), and are placed in the dense Zygoma bone or otherwise known as the cheekbone. The advantage of using Zygomatic Implants is that it eliminates the need for procedures like ridge augmentation (Bone Grafting) and/or Sinus Lifting, which would require more surgery and longer healing periods before the placement of the final restoration.

Inform yourself on steps to take for a successful outcome, please read the full instructions, Cancun Dental Specialists Thanks you in Advanced for being an informed patient

3 WEEKS BEFORE SURGERY

Smoking and Dental Implants don’t go together. Why did you lose your teeth/tooth in the first place. We know smoking can be difficult to quit but we insist that patients stop smoking at least 3 weeks prior to their Dental Implants. In rare cases we might ask you to quit sooner. Smoking can interfere with healing by constricting and decreasing blood flow all over the body which may prevent the wound from healing properly. Do not resume smoking after surgery until you are given permission by our Dental Surgeon.

3 WEEKS BEFORE SURGERY

We know you will be on vacation and the all-inclusive bar might be tempting. Please try and stay away from alcohol consumption for a minimum of 5 days prior to your procedure. Alcohol causes increased bleeding, increases the chances of infection, depresses immune functions and may interfere with wound healing.

3 WEEKS BEFORE SURGERY (over-the-counter and prescribed)

Please check with your Physician about suspending any medication prior to arrival.

You will be instructed by your surgeon or patient counselor to temporarily discontinue certain medications in the weeks ahead.

Drugs containing ASPIRIN, SALICYLATES, SALICYLAMIDES or IBUPROFEN should be avoided for at least two weeks before and after surgery. Brand names are:

  • Aleve
  • A.S.A. Enseals
  • Alka Seltzer Cold Medicine
  • Alka Seltzer Effervescent Tablets
  • Advil Anacin with ASA
  • Anaprox

3 WEEKS BEFORE SURGERY

It is important that you maintain a healthy diet. You will be on a soft mechanical diet or some form of a modified diet tailored to your surgery. It is important that you follow these instructions! It is a good idea to stock up on protein supplements like BOOST or Ensure. Various softer foods like well cooked pastas, eggs, soup/broths, and yogurt are also good ideas. We will provide you with a list of dietary suggestions in your post-op packet as well.

2 WEEKS BEFORE SURGERY

  • All Aspirin and Ibuprofen products including the drugs listed on the enclosed insert.
  • All anti-inflammatory drugs (i.e. Ibuprofen) used for arthritis. (Please consult your physician prior to discontinuing).
  • All anti-coagulants.
  • Vitamin E taken internally.
  • If a medication is in question, call our office nurse.
IMPORTANT! These products may cause excessive bleeding.

2 WEEKS BEFORE SURGERY

  • Take a Multivitamin tablet daily. Most multivitamins contain some form of vitamin E, however this is acceptable to take prior to surgery. We do ask that you refrain from taking additional vitamin E.
  • Take Vitamin A – 8,000-10,000 units, twice a day. This has well-documented beneficial effects on surgical healing and will also fuel your immune system.
  • Take Vitamin C – 1,000 mg., twice a day. This is essential for collagen synthesis, which is part of normal wound healing. Your need for Vitamin C will increase after surgery.
  • Take Bromelain – 1,000 mg., twice a day. (Pineapple enzyme – from a health food store) This helps to relieve the swelling associated with surgery. Bromelain: This anti-inflammatory promotes healing.

1 week BEFORE until 2 weeks AFTER procedure

  • Eat healthy, regular meals.
  • Eat 2 fruits and 3 green vegetables daily (per diet instructions).
  • Eat a small amount of protein at each meal.
IMPORTANT! Your diet can aid healing remarkably and reduce swelling and pain!

1 WEEK BEFORE SURGERY

    • You may begin taking Arnica Montana
    • Take every 8 hours as directed and continue for 10 days.
    • Continue taking Bromelain as directed every 12 hours between meals. This anti-inflammatory promotes healing. As an alternative, eat fresh pineapple.

Arnica: Arnica Montana is an herb that grows wild in the Swiss Alps. Also known simply as “Arnica,” it’s been used in Europe for hundreds of years for the reduction of bruising and swelling and to shorten the recovery period after a physical trauma such as an accident, surgery or injury.

Sinus Lift Post Op Instructions

Please select a topic in order to see details.

Standards of good oral hygiene are critical for the success and functionality of the implants and restoration. The best way to prevent infection and ensure healing is to keep your mouth clean. Clean your mouth thoroughly after each meal beginning the day after surgery. Use a soft bristle toothbrush and toothpaste after meals and at bedtime. Use of a dental waterpik is highly recommended to irrigate underneath the denture to flush out debris.

Minimal bleeding is expected after this implant procedure. The best way to stop bleeding is to place a damp piece of gauze in the mouth and gently bite for 30 minutes. Rest quietly with your head elevated. If bleeding continues, use gauze for an additional 30 minutes. Pink or blood-tinged saliva may be seen for 2-3 days following the surgery and does not indicate a problem. Suture material may last 2 to 3 weeks and should be left alone. You will be asked to return to the office for a 2 week follow-up appointment. Any sutures remaining at that time may be removed at the surgeon’s discretion. Do not pull or cut the sutures yourself.

Swelling is the body’s normal reaction to surgery and healing. The swelling will not become apparent until 24 hours after surgery and will not reach its peak for 2-3 days. After this time, the swelling should decrease but may persist for 7-10 days. Swelling may be minimized by the immediate use of ice packs. Apply the ice packs to the outside of the face 20 minutes on and then 20 minutes off while awake for the first 24 hours.

Unfortunately, most oral surgery is accompanied by some degree of discomfort. If you do not have an allergy to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil) we recommend taking this prior to the local anesthetic wearing off. More severe pain may require a narcotic pain medication. Narcotic pain medication will make you drowsy, do not drive or operate mechanical machinery while taking the prescription. Alternate Ibuprofen (2 tablets / 200mg each) and the narcotic medication every two hours if needed. Once you feel like you can stop the narcotic, use Ibuprofen or Tylenol. You may also be prescribed an antibacterial mouth rinse which should be used twice daily in the first two weeks following implant surgery. Post-operative antibiotics should be taken as directed and always take entire course of the prescription. All medications should not exceed the recommended dosage.

NOTE: If you are taking PLAVIX or COUMADIN, do NOT take Ibuprofen or Aspirin products.

After General anesthetic or I.V. sedation, start with liquids. While numb, patients should avoid hot liquids or foods. Your food intake will be limited for the first few days, compensate for this by increasing your fluid intake. We recommend high protein shakes/smoothies (Ensure, Special K, etc.) as meal replacement supplements. Patients are restricted to a SOFT CHEW diet for the first 6 weeks… if food cannot be easily cut with a fork… DO NOT eat it!

For the first 48 hours you should rest and relax with no physical activity. After 48 hours, you may resume activity as tolerated.

Eat:

  • Jell-O
  • Pudding
  • Yogurt
  • Ice Cream
  • Scrambled Eggs
  • Cream of Wheat / Oatmeal
  • Soups
  • Mashed Potatoes
  • Fish
  • Pasta
  • Pancakes
  • Cottage Cheese
  • Applesauce

Drink:

  • Water
  • Juice
  • Ice Chips
  • Popsicles
  • Smoothies / Protein Shakes
  • Milkshakes

Add Soft Foods When Numbness is Gone / Increase Diet as Tolerated

  • If the corners of your mouth are stretched, they may dry and crack. Your lips should be kept moist with an ointment such as Vaseline.
  • Sore throats and pain when swallowing are not uncommon. The muscles get swollen and the normal act of swallowing can become painful. This will subside in 2 to 3 days.
  • Stiffness of the jaw muscles may cause difficulty in opening your mouth for a few days. Do not force your mouth open. Massage the muscles and apply moist heat.
  • With upper jaw implant treatment, you may develop bleeding from the nose. This is usually a temporary finding and will not persist past 2 to 3 days. Avoid blowing your nose for several days.
  • An appointment with your general dentist may be needed within a few days of surgery to make any adjustments to your temporary denture.
  • Your case is individual as no two mouths are alike. Discuss all questions or concerns with your oral surgeon or implant coordinator.

Informed patients are happy patients that why we have taken the time to write this.

Sinus Lift Complications

Surgical Complications – Interim Prosthesis – Final Restoration

This treatment option basically has the same complications with any immediately loaded fixed implant prosthesis. Some aspects, mainly related to Sky Fast & Fixed particularities will be highlighted.

The acrylic interim prosthesis can fracture, this occurring mainly after the ten week period of recommendation of eating soft diet, when patients fell confident to chew harder food. If unmanaged, it can lead to implant failure, due to the alteration of the splinting process. Therefore, the interim prosthesis should not be reinforced, because it may mask the fracture and delay the patient’s addressing to the dental office.

If chipping of the ceramic of the definitive prosthesis occurs, this being a relative frequent complication, the interim prosthesis can be used for the time needed for laboratory repairing.

One important risk factor for all implant prosthesis, including this treatment option, that is linked to sometimes severe complications, is the correctness of the registration of maxillomandibular relations (respecting the coincidence of maximal intercuspal position and centric relation, and the functional vertical dimension of occlusion). Acknowledging that, in a dentate patient with posterior occluding teeth it is recommended their preservation until after the interim prosthesis is manufactured, in order to ensure a correct registration.
