Are you considering dental implants but concerned about the lack of bone in your upper jaw? Don’t worry, Dr. Vikram Pandit, offers a solution called the sinus lift procedure. This advanced technique allows individuals with insufficient bone density in their maxillary sinuses to undergo dental implant treatment successfully.
What is a Sinus Lift?
A sinus lift, also known as sinus augmentation, is a surgical procedure that aims to increase the amount of bone in the upper jaw, specifically in the area of the molars and premolars. It is often required when the natural bone height is inadequate to support dental implants. The procedure involves lifting the sinus membrane and adding bone graft material to create a solid foundation for the implants. This procedure is used for dental implants.

The Sinus Lift Procedure at Pandit Clinic
1. Initial Consultation
During your initial consultation, you will meet with Dr. Vikram Pandit, who will conduct a thorough examination and evaluate your dental and medical history. This step allows him to determine if a sinus lift procedure is necessary and suitable for your specific case.
2. Pre-operative Planning
If a sinus lift is recommended, Dr. Vikram Pandit will develop a comprehensive treatment plan tailored to your needs. This plan may include the use of advanced imaging techniques, such as 3D cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), to accurately assess your bone structure.
3. Surgical Procedure
On the day of your sinus lift procedure, you will be provided with appropriate anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the surgery. Dr. Vikram Pandit will carefully access the maxillary sinus through a small incision in the gum tissue. The sinus membrane will be gently lifted, and bone graft material will be placed in the created space. The incision will then be sutured closed.
4. Healing and Integration
Following the sinus lift procedure, the bone graft material needs time to integrate with your natural bone. Over the next several months, the grafted area will heal and develop new bone, creating a solid foundation for future dental implants.
5. Dental Implant Placement
Once the healing process is complete, you will return to the Pandit Clinic for the placement of your dental implants. Dr. Vikram Pandit will carefully position the implants in the newly augmented bone, ensuring stability and longevity.
After the dental implants have integrated with the bone, the final step is the restoration of your smile. This involves attaching custom-made dental crowns or other prosthetic options to the implants, providing you with a natural-looking and functional set of teeth. Having understood how Pandit Clinic can help you with the sinus lift procedure, let’s now understand more about it.
When is Sinus Lift Procedure for Dental Implants Necessary?
Prior to the sinus lift procedure, an initial consultation at the Pandit Clinic will be conducted. Dr. Vikram Pandit will evaluate your dental and medical history, conduct a comprehensive examination, and utilize advanced imaging techniques to assess your bone density and sinus anatomy. This thorough assessment helps determine if a sinus lift is the right procedure for you. If deemed suitable, the next step is to schedule your surgery and provide you with detailed pre-operative instructions.
On the day of your sinus lift procedure, Dr. Vikram Pandit and his skilled team will administer local anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the surgery. Using specialized instruments, an incision will be made in the gum tissue, exposing the bone underneath. A small, carefully created window will be opened in the bone, providing access to the sinus membrane. The membrane is gently lifted, and a bone grafting material will be inserted into the space created. This graft material will stimulate bone growth and integration. Once the graft is in place, the incision will be closed, and the healing process will begin.
After the sinus lift procedure, you may experience some swelling, discomfort, and mild bleeding. Dr. Vikram Pandit will provide you with post-operative instructions, including pain management techniques and guidelines for a soft-food diet during the initial healing period. It’s essential to follow these instructions diligently to ensure proper healing and minimize any potential complications. You will have a follow-up appointment at the Pandit Clinic to monitor your progress and remove any sutures if necessary.
The cost of a sinus lift procedure at the Pandit Clinic varies depending on individual needs and the complexity of the case. During your initial consultation, Dr. Vikram Pandit will provide you with a detailed breakdown of the expected costs, including any additional procedures that may be required for successful implant placement. Our clinic offers flexible payment options and works with various insurance providers to ensure that you receive the best possible care within your budget.
What to Expect
Following a successful sinus lift procedure, the bone graft will integrate with your existing bone over several months. This process, called osseointegration, provides a solid foundation for the placement of dental implants. Dr. Vikram Pandit and his team will monitor your progress during the healing period, ensuring that the bone is adequately prepared for the next stage of your dental implant treatment.
When to Talk with a Doctor Post-Surgery
While the recovery period after a sinus lift procedure is generally smooth, it’s crucial to stay vigilant and reach out to Dr. Vikram Pandit if you experience any of the following:
- Excessive bleeding that doesn’t subside with gentle pressure
Severe or worsening pain that is not alleviated by prescribed pain medication
Persistent swelling or inflammation that does not decrease after a few days
