Sinus lift surgery
During the maxillary sinus lift surgery, sinus mucosa is lifted, then protected using a special membrane, and the sinus floor is filled using bone substitute.
During the maxillary sinus lift surgery, sinus mucosa is lifted, then protected using a special membrane, and the sinus floor is filled using bone substitute. This way, the alveolar ridge height is increased to allow for implant placement to restore lost upper molars and premolars. Usually implants may be placed only 4 to 9 months after sinus lift surgery. This time is necessary for the placed bone substitute to heal, i.e., for blood vessels to grow into it and change it to regular bone. In some cases implants may be placed during the same visit.
During the consultation, your alveolar ridge height and width will be evaluated, you will be informed about the sinus lift surgery (open or closed technique), anesthesia (local, intravenous, general), preparation for the procedure, its complications and risks.
Preparation for sinus lift:
A panoramic X-ray and/or volumetric computed tomography is done before the procedure to evaluate the alveolar ridge form and anatomical structures. Important: it is advised to avoid flights and diving at least 7 days after the procedure.
No specific preparation is necessary for sinus lift under local anesthesia. Have a meal before the procedure, since it is not recommended to eat 2 to 3 hours after the surgery. If the surgery is planned under intravenous/general anesthesia, the following tests are recommended: Full blood test, blood glucose test, blood clotting tests (APTT, PT, INR), urine test and electrocardiogram (ECG).
1. It is normal to expect swelling, reddening, tenderness of the surgical site. Usually the swelling increases 2 to 4 days after the procedure.
2. There may also be pain upon touching the area. It usually starts to decrease after 3 to 4 days.
3. Bruising visible on the face. Usually most visible 2 to 4 days post procedure. Does not require any additional treatment. During resorption, the color of the bruise changes (from reddish blue to greenish yellow). The adjacent areas may also develop bruising. The size of the bruising depends on the scope and type of surgery and the body reaction to the procedure.
Other recommended treatments
The ProDentum clinic has a wide range of services and provides patients with the highest level of professionalism.
TFW protocol includes digital and analog technology used for everything from diagnostic imaging, implant planning to final restoration using special devices for measuring accuracy.
Implant placement using dynamic navigation
Dental implant placement is a surgical procedure where high precision is of greatest importance. Extra-precise dental implant positioning has a lower risk of complications, and occasionally allows us to avoid bone augmentation.
Often large scale tooth crown defects cannot be restored using fillings. In these cases, inlays, onlays or crowns may be used to restore damaged teeth.

Prodentum Clinic is one of the most advanced clinics in the practice of applying the latest technologies in the treatment of patients.
Cosmetic bonding and cosmetic dentistry
It's a modern treatment method to restore damaged or unappealing front teeth. The goal of bonding is to restore a tooth so it blends with the adjacent teeth.
Treatment of worn teeth
Non-carious lesions, also called tooth wear, is another factor that influences the need for dental work.
If a tooth is severely damaged and there are no reasonable ways to restore it, such tooth must be extracted. A minimally injuring (atraumatic) tooth extraction allows for a smoother implant placement in the future.
In ProDentum clinic, root canal treatment is performed by highly qualified professionals using leading technology (digital radiology, microscopy and other measures) to achieve the highest quality root canal treatment.
Dental treatment under sedation
Some patients experience severe discomfort during dental procedures. They may have various fears of sound (made by dental instruments), touch, pricking, smells, unusual environment and other anxieties.
Professional tooth cleaning
During the procedure ultrasonic, manual and rotary instruments are used to clean mineralized plaque (calculus) and to polish tooth surfaces.
Digital smile design
It is great that today dentistry can use digital technology and visualization to provide an approximate image of the planned result.
Temporomandibular disorders are problems of the jaw joint and chewing muscles.
Tests and consultations
The goal of all consultations in the ProDentum clinic is to create the most detailed treatment plan which is acceptable in all aspects, taking in consideration patient's general health and the condition of the masticatory system, patient's complaints, financial ability and preferences.
