How much does a sinus lift cost?


If you are considering dental implants to replace one or more missing teeth in your upper jaw, a sinus lift is necessary if you lack the bone mass in your upper jaw to hold the implant firmly in place. In this situation, the sinus lift cost is one of the things you might be extremely concerned about. This article will provide you with popular sinus lift cost and the factors that affect it. Let’s find out with Ava Dental Clinic!

What is a sinus lift procedure?

A sinus lift, also known as a sinus implant, a sinus lift or a sinus augmentation procedure is a surgical procedure that increases the amount of bone in the posterior maxilla (maxillary bone), in the area of ​​the premolars and molars, by elevating the sinus membrane and placing a bone graft.

Some causes of bone loss include:

– Gum or periodontal disease

– Loss of teeth in your upper jaw

– Bone resorption into the body after tooth loss

– The size of the jawbone is small to implant

– Large sinuses lead to less room for dental implants

– Sinus is too close to the upper jaw

The average sinus lift cost

A sinus lift is a bone grafting procedure often performed when the bone in a patient’s upper jaw is too thin to hold the implant in place. If your dentist determines that your sinuses are too close to the surgical site for a safe dental implant, a shorter implant may be an alternative. However, studies on the effectiveness of these types of implants have been mixed. While some findings indicate that short implants are not as durable as longer implants, other findings report similar success rates when used for dentures.

For this reason, sinus lift was born to make dental implants easier and more secure. While a sinus lift will significantly prolong the recovery time, the benefits will outweigh the additional time and money spent on a short implant.

Sinus lift procedure

On average, a sinus lift costs $1,500 for the Osteotome Technique to $2,500 for the Lateral Window Technique per side, meaning you pay $3,000 to $5,000 if both sides are needed.

After about 3-6 months of healing, dental implants can range from $1,000 to $3,000 for each tooth.

If you need to take antibiotics before sinus lift surgery, your surgeon will prescribe them. And during your recovery, you may also need prescription pain relievers and antihistamines. These are costs not included in the original quote.

The cost of sinus lift surgery varies by the dentist and can be higher depending on the complexity of the surgery. It may also depend on the amount of bone grafting material required. When more bone graft material is needed, the cost of surgery often increases.

The sinus lift procedure is one of the expensive ones. However, it is often performed as an adjunct to dental implants, which can take a toll on a patient’s budget. Even so, the costs associated with complications that may arise if the patient in need doesn’t have it performed may be even higher.

The biggest factors that determine the final quote are your location and the experience of the dentist performing the job. Larger cities cost more than smaller areas. And of course, the more experienced the dentist, the more they will charge.

Factors affecting the sinus lift cost

There are several factors that affect sinus lift cost:

– Type of bone used for implantation:

  • Autografts: involves bone from the patient’s own bones such as the hip, tibia, or back of the jaw.
  • Allografts: involves bone from a human donor, usually a cadaver.
  • Xenografts: involves bone from animal sources, usually cow bone.
  • Alloplastics: deals with synthetic material, such as calcium phosphate or calcium sodium phosphosilicate.

The type of bone graft used in sinus lift surgery depends on several factors: what services the dentist requires, insurance coverage, and the patient’s requirements. Autologous bone resorption is bone that has the ability to strengthen the jawbone and promote faster healing. 

However, this type of surgery is quite expensive when the patient has to undergo 2 surgeries (the surgery to remove the bone used for the implant and the sinus lift surgery that occurs after a few months). The most common type of bone graft available is cow bone graft due to availability and it combines very well with human bone and rarely causes complications.

– Additional procedures such as X-rays from $50 to $200 and CT scans from $300 to $900.

– Additional costs may include antibiotics given before surgery and pain relievers and antihistamines after surgery.
