HOW MUCH DOES THE SINUS LIFTING PROCEDURE COST?
In some cases, when the maxillary sinuses enlarge due to tooth loss and bone resorption, the implants can no longer be inserted in optimal conditions unless we resort to the sinus lift procedure. In this situation, the final price of the dental implant operation will increase because the price of the sinus lift, respectively that of the bone addition, will be added to the price of the initial implantation procedure.
HOW DOES THE COST VARY?
To find out what price you will pay for a sinus lift, you must first determine the degree of resorption of the maxillary bone. If the bone has an acceptable degree of resorption, the internal sinus lift procedure will be used, the price being lower. Conversely, if the resorption is very advanced, an external sinus lift will be applied and the price will be much higher.
ADVICE! If you have lost one or more teeth, do not let years pass and go to the doctor as soon as possible so that the jaw bone does not have time to resorb. Thus, you will no longer need the sinus lift procedure and you will only pay the price of the dental implant.
EXTERNAL VS INTERNAL LIFTING
The jaw has 2 sinuses arranged near the nostrils. Each sinus has 3 corresponding teeth. Regardless of whether one or all 3 teeth have fallen out, the price of the facelift is the same.
Unlike external lifting, the internal method allows the implant to be placed in the same session, and the cost is significantly lower.
GOOD TO KNOW: The external lifting procedure cannot be applied at the same time as the implant insertion. First the external sinus lift is performed, then after about 6 months the implant can be inserted.
