Dental Implants and Sinus Perforation

Wednesday, February 26th, 2020

Oral surgeons and dentists who specialize in restoration dentistry understand that implants are a key procedure in their field. As such, they must also be cognizant of the complications that might arise from surgical procedures. One of the biggest concerns revolves around sinus membrane perforation.

The sinuses are the air spaces found in the hollow parts of the facial bones. Most of the sinus tissue is located around the nose or under the eyes. The upper jaw, particularly the back portion, is a delicate area to place dental implants. When placing an implant, there is a possibility of the post to puncture the bone and affect the sinus area.

A sinus membrane perforation can compromise the stability of a dental implant. On top of that, a collection of other complications may occur. Among the most common is a sinus infection, which causes irritation and problems with a patient’s sense of smell. Perforated sinuses directly affect the dental implant, which can cause it to become loose.

Several procedures may be employed to minimize the risk of a sinus perforation. One such method is the sinus lift, which grafts bone near the upper jaw to stabilize the location of the dental implant. Sinus augmentation surgery can take anywhere between four and twelve months to develop, which can lengthen the overall treatment period for dental implant surgery.

Oral surgeons, periodontists, and restoration dentists are at the forefront of developing new surgical techniques and interventions that improve the lives of patients. By recognizing the causes and effects of sinus membrane perforation, dentists can find ways to mitigate their impact.

Welcome to The Journal of Implant & Advanced Clinical Dentistry Blog

Wednesday, February 19th, 2020

The Journal of Implant and Advanced Clinical Dentistry is committed to publishing research and dental literature that takes advantage of multimedia technology. Our publication includes authoritative research, reviews, clinical techniques, and expert commentary on oral surgery.

Our journal of clinical dentistry stands out from other publications in the sense that we publish in a completely digital format. This move arises from environmental necessity. A single month’s run of an academic journal can use up to 2 million sheets of paper. Owing to the assumption that journals are read once and discarded, it is clear to see that traditional print-exclusive editions can leave a negative impact on the environment.

The paperless editions of our releases are available through subscription. Readers will gain valuable insights from the bevy of new information, reviews, case studies, and commentary contained therein. All articles in our journal are written by members of the dentistry community, including practicing dentists and researchers. We adhere to strict academic standards, which include peer review. Each edition of our journal contains articles that have undergone rigorous evaluation.

You can supplement your subscription to our journal of clinical dentistry by following our blog. This section will be a source of interesting topics related to dentistry and oral surgery. We encourage you to visit often and learn about issues within our field that will require more study. Join us and let us take steps to advance the profession of dentistry.
