A sinus lift is a procedure that aims to lift the maxillary (upper) sinuses and place a bone graft between this area. It is most often needed if you have bone loss and are looking to have implants placed. The procedure is essential for patients who have moderate to severe bone loss, and who may not be able to have implants placed as a result of this.
WHY WOULD A SINUS LIFT BE NEEDED?
The most common reason for needing a sinus lift is because you suffer from upper bone loss and want implants placed. Once the lift is done, a bone grafting is immediately performed, helping to add bone where it is missing. You may be suffering from bone loss because one or more teeth have been removed or because you have gum disease. Sinus lifts are relatively common procedures and can be done on patients of all ages.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR A SINUS LIFT?
Most patients who need a sinus lift and are looking to have implants placed can and should consider a sinus lift. The procedure is a lot more simple than it sounds and can improve the success of implants being placed in these areas. We will perform an exam and take x-rays to determine if you have bone loss and if so, when you may need a sinus lift.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE SINUS LIFT PROCEDURE?
We begin by administering a general anesthetic to make the procedure more comfortable for you. We then work to create an incision in the upper gums to gain access to the sinuses. The sinus cavity is lifted and a bone grafting material put into place. Once this is done, the gums are sutured and the grafting material is given time to heal. Once it is healed, we’ll go ahead and insert the dental implants into the freshly healed bone.

How are Dental Crowns, Dental Bridges, and Veneers teeth made and how can they be maintained?
Dental crowns, dental bridges, and veneers, also known as artificial teeth, offer a remarkable solution for individuals experiencing tooth loss, regardless of whether they have a single tooth or multiple tooth. You can categorize these teeth as retractable or fixed, each with its own unique characteristics.
Retractable teeth are equipped with plates that attach to the missing teeth. It is essential to clean them thoroughly after meals and remove them before bedtime.
On the other hand, fixed teeth can be divided into two types: teeth supported by existing teeth and teeth supported by implanted roots in the jawbone. In the former case, a dental bridge, composed of two or more supportive teeth with a middle tooth attached, acts as a replacement. The supportive teeth cover the bridge, providing stability. In the latter case, the dentist implants a titanium screw into the bone and attaches a tooth to it. Unlike natural teeth, these fixed teeth cannot be misplace and function similarly.
Maintaining artificial teeth requires regular dental check-ups every six months, just like natural teeth. It is crucial to care for prosthetic teeth by keeping them clean, scheduling routine check-ups, and promptly addressing any detected issues. By following these practices, you can maximize the longevity and functionality of artificial teeth.
What options are available for patients with gap teeth who want to avoid traditional procedures like crown bridges?
Many patients prefer expedited procedures that guarantee results and do not involve the wiring or cutting of natural teeth. For individuals with small gaps between their teeth, cosmetic dentistry restorative procedures and cement filling can provide temporary solutions. However, these options may not be long-lasting.
Alternatively, veneers can be an excellent choice for patients who wish to close the gaps without altering their natural teeth. These thin covering are designed to match the patient’s specific need, customized through digital processes. Veneers offer a reliable and aesthetic solution for individuals seeking faster and less invasive treatment.
Can artificial teeth replicate the function and appearance of natural teeth?
Many people wonder if artificial teeth can function as effectively as natural teeth. They may have concerns about chewing food or the possibility of their teeth coming loose while speaking. However, such issues rarely occur. In certain situations, factors such as old age or an excessive number of teeth may necessitate the extraction of teeth, which can cause discomfort.
Dentists use cast partial dentures with metal plates to restore chewing functionality for patients requiring extractions. Utilizing support from neighboring teeth or bone screw, fixed implant-supported teeth present another option. These fixed teeth, similar to natural teeth, offer comparable functionality and cannot be misplaced.
Dentists use cast partial dentures with metal plates to restore chewing functionality for patients who require extractions. Additionally, they offer fixed implant supported teeth that utilize support form neighboring teeth or bone screws. These fixed teeth closely resemble natural teeth in appearance and functionality, and they cannot be misplaced.
We advise patients with artificial teeth to maintain regular dental check-ups every six months. Additionally, they should exercise extra care since prosthetic teeth require proper cleaning and maintenance. By following these recommendations, you can significantly improve the aesthetics and functionality of artificial teeth.
What is the recommended treatment for tooth discoloration?
Tooth discoloration can have various causes, including genetic defects and hereditary factors. In some cases, the hard enamel covering of the teeth may be defective, leaving the inner part exposed to food and bacteria. Alternatively, the inner part of the teeth itself may be weak. We can design full mouth rehabilitation treatment plans to address these issues, considering both functionality and aesthetics.
We advise patients experiencing discoloration or suspecting any dental issues to seek professional dental care. Proper diagnosis and treatment can help restore the natural appearance and health of their teeth.
How can sensitive teeth be treated effectively?
Sensitive teeth can arise due to factors such as aging, dietary habits, or teeth grinding during sleep. These issues can impact facial muscles, and joints, and decrease the height of the teeth.
Patients can pursue full-mouth rehabilitation to address the underlying causes of tooth sensitivity. Adjusting the bite of the patient plays a crucial role in reducing discomfort while maintaining normal functions like eating, chewing, and talking.
What advice can be given to individuals who lack confidence due to the absence of ears or eyes?
Individuals with ear or eye defects may experience a diminished sense of beauty and self-confidence. Customizable silicon eyes, ears, and noses are available to help address these concerns. Before selecting prosthetics, it is important to consider the distinction between ready-made options, which may lack a natural appearance and customized options.
For those seeking a natural look, consider procedures like eye orbital implantation for the eyes and silicon molds for the nose and ears. Precise measurements, multiple appointments, and patient satisfaction assessments guide the creation of personalized silicone prosthetics, ensuring the best possible aesthetic outcomes.
Do dentists have any role in cases where people have to remove their teeth and tongue due to mouth cancer or accidents?
Yes, a dentist does have a role in such cases. They play a crucial role in providing support and treatment to patients who have undergone treatment for mouth cancer or experienced accidents that require the removal of their teeth and tongue.
What is the dentist’s role in such cases?
In these situations, dentists focus on increasing the patients’ self-assurance and addressing their alternative methods of eating. They develop a treatment plan based on the patient’s specific needs. For example, if the patient loses their teeth or bone structure, we can a bone plate as a replacement and manage it properly.
How do dentists address the absence of teeth and the separation between the nose and mouth in cases where cancer affects the maxilla bone?
When cancer cuts off the maxilla bone, resulting in the loss of teeth and the absence of the wall separating the nose and mouth, dentists can create a plate that serves as an artificial palate. This plate blocks the flow of food from the nose and prevents potential infections.
What materials do dentists use in the treatment process?
If the dentist performs immediate surgery, they will place a plate according to the defect and utilize additional materials during the healing stages. Finally, the dentist uses a metal material to create artificial teeth that enable the patient to chew, talk, and smile.
What is the difference between a dental crown, bridge, and veneers?
Dental crowns, bridges, and veneers are distinct dental treatments. Dentists use a dental crown, also known as a dental cap, to restore the shape, size, strength, and appearance of a damaged or decayed tooth. Dentists use a dental bridge to replace one or more missing teeth. On the other hand, dentists use veneers, which are thin layers of tooth-colored materials, to improve the appearance of teeth, especially for patients who want to address spacing issues without altering their natural teeth.
Can artificial teeth damage our facial structure?
In some cases, patients with poorly fitted dental crowns or bridges or those with misaligned bites can experience issues that affect their jaw bone and facial structure. To avoid such complications, it is essential to visit a specialized dental hospital with registered dentists who are knowledgeable in these matters. Even small alterations in tooth placement, sometimes just a matter of millimeters, can have a significant impact on our facial bones and muscles.
What message would you like to convey to patients who are scared of dental bridges, dental crowns, and veneers?
We assure patients that they employ various alternative methods to make their treatments less intimidating. Dentists find less scary options to meet patients’ needs, addressing their fears of tooth removal or other dental treatments.

As dental professionals, one of the most common questions we get from patients is whether or not they should have their wisdom teeth removed. Wisdom teeth, also known as the third molar, typically erupt between the ages of 17 and 25 and develop as the last set of teeth. While some people never experience any problems with their wisdom teeth, others may develop complications that require removal.
In this blog post explore the pros and cons of wisdom teeth removal to help you make an informed decision about your dental health.
Pros and Cons of Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth removal is a common dental procedure that many people undergo. While it can prevent potential problems such as crowding and decay, there are also risks associated with the surgery and recovery time to consider.
In this blog, we will explore the pros and cons of it so that you can make an informed decision about whether this procedure is right for you.
Prevention of Crowding and Misalignment
Many people do not have enough space in their mouths for their wisdom teeth to fully erupt, which can lead to crowding and misalignment of the surrounding teeth.
This can cause discomfort and may require orthodontic treatment to correct. Removing the wisdom teeth can prevent these issues from occurring and preserve the alignment of your other teeth.
Reduces the Risk of Tooth Decay
Wisdom teeth can cause a range of uncomfortable symptoms, including pain, swelling, and infection. By removing these teeth, you can alleviate these symptoms and improve your overall quality of life.
Relief from Pain and Discomfort
Wisdom teeth are located at the back of the mouth, which can make them difficult clean properly. This can increase the risk of tooth decay and gum disease, which can lead to more serious oral health problems. By removing wisdom teeth, you can reduce your risk of these conditions and maintain optimal oral health.
As with any surgical procedure, there is a risk of complications associated with wisdom teeth removal. These can include bleeding, infection, nerve damage, and dry socket. However, these risks can be minimized by choosing an experienced dental professional and following post-operative care instructions carefully.
Wisdom teeth removal can be costly, especially if you do not have dental insurance or if your insurance does not cover the procedure. However, the cost of treating complications that can arise from keeping your wisdom teeth can far outweigh the cost of extraction.
The recovery time following wisdom teeth removal can vary depending on the individual and the extent of the procedure. You may experience swelling, pain, and difficulty eating and speaking for a few days after the procedure. However, these symptoms typically subside within a week or two, and you can return to your normal activities soon after.
In conclusion, it can have both pros and cons. While it can prevent overcrowding, decay, infection, and other issues, there are also risks and recovery times to consider. Furthermore, consult your dentist if you experience pain or discomfort in your wisdom teeth for necessary removal.

दाँतको समस्या धेरैलाई हुन्छ । चाहे दाँत किरा लागेर देखा पर्ने समस्या होस् वा अन्य कारणले हुने समस्या नै किन नहोस् । दाँतमा धेरैलाई देखिने समस्या दाँत किराले खाने, दाँत फाट्टीयर आउने तथा चोट लागेर दाँत टुक्रिएर जाने हो । यस्तो समस्याको लागि फिलिंग (सिमेट भरेर) समाधान गर्ने धेरैको रोजाई बनेको छ ।
दाँत किन भर्नुपर्छ :
दाँतमा देखिने विभिन्न समस्याको समधानको लागि दाँतमा सिमेन्ट (फिलिंग ) भरिन्छ । दाँत किराले खाँदा, किराले खाएको स्थान सफा गरेर पुर्न,भर्ने लाइ फिलिंग भनिन्छ । दाँत भाँचिदा वा फुट्दा टाल्नको लागि । दाँतको खाली ठाउँ भर्न । दाँतमा सौन्दर्यता ल्याउनको लागि पनि दाँतमा गरिन्छ ।
भरेपछि ध्यान दिनुपर्ने कुराहरु:
धेरैको बानी हुन्छ कि दाँतमा सिमेन्ट भरेपछि सकियो । भरिएको सिमेन्ट बारे कुनै सावधानी अपनाउनु पर्दैन । यस्तै सोच र व्यवहारका कारण सिमेन्ट भरिसकेपछि विभिन्न समस्या देखापर्छ । तर सिमेन्ट भरेपछि बढी साह्रो, गुलियो, दाँतमा टासिने कुरा खानुहुँदैन् । साथै सिमेन्ट भर्ने बित्तिकै एक घण्टा जति केही पनि नखाँदा राम्रो । यसोगर्दा भरेको सिमेन्ट उक्किनुको साथै अन्य समस्या निम्ताउन सक्छ । दाँतमा सिमेन्ट भरिसके पछि यसको सुरक्षाको लागि सधै सचेत रहनुपर्छ । दाँतमा भरिने सिमेन्ट विभिन्न प्रकारका हुन्छन् : अमाल्गम, मिराकल मिक्स, जिआसी,कम्पोजिट आदि इत्यादि । यी मध्ये सबै कस्मेटिक उपचार मा सबै भन्दा बढी प्रयोगमा आएको कम्पोजिट फिलिंग मानिन्छ । दन्तरोगलाई तुलनात्मक रुपमा अलि महंगो उपचार मानिन्छ । एक त दाँतमा कुनै पनि समस्या आउन नदिनु नै उत्तम । यदि लागिहाले पनि बेलैमा उपचार गर्नुपर्छ । अन्यथा गिजा लगायत मुखमा अझ समस्या बढ्न सक्छ ।
