Sinus Lift in Turkey

Compare 13 clinics

A sinus lift surgery or sinus augmentation procedure is a type of dentistry procedure performed in order to increase the amount of bone in the upper jaw (also called the posterior maxilla). In order to do this, the maxillary sinus is “lifted”, hence the name of the procedure, sinus lift surgery.

Sinus lift surgery is usually performed when the upper jaw bone loses height and width. Bone loss is usually caused by tooth loss. Some of the most common reasons for tooth loss are:

● Periodontal disease
● Dental trauma
● Dental decay

The loss of bone volume makes it impossible to perform a dental implant in the area, as dental implants require a stable and strong bone foundation in order to cope with daily pressure from chewing.

Sinus Lift Candidates

Sinus lift surgery or sinus augmentation is recommended for the following categories of patients:

● Patients who lost one or more teeth in the posterior maxilla
● Patients with a significant amount of bone loss in the posterior maxilla
● Patients with missing teeth due to birth defects or genetics
● Patients requiring multiple implants in the upper jaw

The procedure is also recommended for patients with a lowered sinus. Lowering of the sinus is usually caused by:

● Trauma
● Long term tooth loss
● Periodontal disease

Am I Suitable for Sinus Lift?

Sinus lift surgery is not recommended for patients suffering from one or more of the following:

● Sinus infection
● Tumours in the sinus
● Chronic topical steroid use
● Severe allergic rhinitis
● Excessive tobacco use

Patients who recently underwent radiation therapy should postpone their surgery and give the body ample time to heal before subjecting it to sinus augmentation.

Preparing for Sinus Lift

Certain tests are needed before the sinus lift surgery can be performed. These tests determine the health of the patient’s sinuses. It’s a good idea for patients to have a few x-rays of the upper jaws and sinuses before going overseas for treatment. A computed tomography may also be necessary in some cases, in order to measure the sinus’ width and height.

How is Sinus Lift Performed?

Sinus lift surgery is usually performed under local anaesthesia. Once the anaesthesia kicks in, the dental surgeon will begin creating an incision into the gum tissue, straight under the sinus area. The gum tissue is then raised in order to expose the bone underneath. A small window is created into the bone, exposing the sinus’ membrane. This thin membrane is pushed up and bone graft material is introduced into this space.

Different types of bone graft materials can be used:

● Autogenous bone (a bone graft taken from the patient’s own body)
● Biomaterials
● A combination of biomaterials and the patient’s own bone

Once the material is introduced into the cavity, the incision is closed with stitches. The bone graft material will then begin to merge with the patient’s own bone tissue.

Sinus Lift Summary


Local or General anesthetic

Duration of Operation

90 to 120 minutes

Sinus Lift Recovery

Patients may experience some swelling around the incision area. Bleeding from the nose or mouth is also possible during the first few weeks after the sinus lift procedure. Patients need to avoid sneezing or blowing their nose – the stitches can get loose and the bone graft material can move inside the cavity.

Patients will receive painkillers, antibiotics and antibacterial mouthwashes which can help prevent infection after the sinus lift surgery.

Sinus Lift Risks and Complications

Sinus lift surgery risks and complications include:

● Torn or punctured sinus membrane
● Infection
● Sinusitis
● Tissue or nerve damage
● Graft failure
● Hematoma
● Revision surgery

Sinus Lift Side Effects

Sinus lift surgery side effects include:

● Bleeding
● Pain
● Discomfort
● Swelling
● Inflammation

Sinus Lift Success Rates

Sinus lift surgery reviews set the average success rate well over 90%.

Before and After Sinus Lift

The area needs ample time to heal properly – around 5 to 9 months after the sinus lift procedure, implants can be placed in the jaw. In some cases, the dental implant procedure and sinus lift procedure may be performed simultaneously, but it depends on the patient’s existing bone structure.

Turkey is a treasure trove of traditions, spices, street food delights and destinations for any intrepid tourist. It’s a mix between the familiar and the exotic, ranging from the bustling streets of Istanbul to the serene and relaxed Roman ruins spread around Turkey’s Western and Southern coast. Turkey is a fairly large country with 75 million inhabitants. The country spreads between Europe and Asia, with 97% of the country on the Asian side – Asian Turkey. Turkey is encircled and enjoys access to three different seas: The Black Sea, The Aegean Sea and the Mediterranean. Istanbul is the largest city in Turkey and the largest city in Europe, regarding population – It has over 14 million people.


Turkey’s medical infrastructure has improved greatly beginning with the early 2000s and now is one of the biggest medical tourism hubs in Europe and Asia. Turkey has the largest number of JCI-accredited hospitals, second only to the USA and hospitals are more often than not part of international healthcare groups, following strict European protocols and regulations. Turkey has 28.000 medical institutions spread across the European and Asian side but some of the biggest private hospitals and medical centres are in Istanbul, Ankara, Antalya and Bodrum – these also happen to be some of the best tourist destinations in Turkey.

Sights to See

Bodrum is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Turkey, with its sandy beaches and small streets littered with traditional shops and elegant restaurants. The town used to be called Halicarnassus, and the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus is one of the World’s Seven Ancient Wonders. Bodrum also features a castle built by the crusaders in the 15th century.

Istanbul is the home of several architectural treasures, including the Blue Mosque. The Blue Mosque was built on the orders of Sultan Ahmed between 1609 and 1616 and the Sultan’s body still resides within the mosque. The high ceiling is lined with more than 20000 handmade ceramic tiles, hence the name – The Blue Mosque.

Pamukkale, meaning “The Cotton Castle” in Turkish is a surreal destination in the country’s western region of Denizli, world renowned for its white terraces with warm spring water. The ancient Greek city of Hierapolis was built over the springs and Pamukkale was a renowned destination in antiquity as well. Tourists can visit the ancient Roman and Greek ruins of the baths, temples and theatres dating to the second century BC.

Things to Know

● If you don’t feel like waiting in a queue, you can get a VISA for Turkey online. The VISA usually costs around $20 for US travellers.

● Turkey’s population is predominantly Islamic so it’s a good idea to wear a headscarf while visiting mosques. Shorts or any other garments that fit under the knee are not prohibited by law but it’s considered good etiquette not to wear shorts for men or short skirts for women.

● You can change any sort of currency into the Turkish Lira – the Turkish currency just about everywhere. Most supermarkets and shops also accept credit cards.

● Roaming fees in Turkey can be somewhat expensive, so it’s a good idea to simply buy a new Turkish SIM card and use it while staying in Turkey.

● Turkey’s international calling code is +90.

● Electrical installations usually operate on 220 volts, 50 Hz and use European style plugs and European style sockets. Four and Five star hotels usually provide North American - 120 volts, 60 Hz sockets as well.

● Driving in Turkey can be a hassle sometimes, but very pleasurable at other times. Roads are usually in good shape and some roads actually lack traffic, so it can be a relaxing experience. In Turkey, people drive on the right, so that’s a detail you will need to keep in mind. In some areas, villagers made cardboard and marker pen signs in order to help lost tourist on their way.

● Renting a car in Turkey is quite simple and cheap. If you have the budget for a full insurance, you should definitely take it – if anything happens, at least you won’t have to worry about money.

● The Turkish Airlines Company, THY offers destinations to just about anywhere in the world with a total of 261 destinations. The company was founded in 1933 and features 285 passenger and cargo planes.

● Turkey uses the metric system which is easy enough to understand – 1 Km = 1000 meters, 1 Kg = 1000 grams, and so on. One mile equals 1.60 Km.

● Turkish people are warm and very hospitable - It is customary for people to hug and kiss both cheeks regardless of their gender.

● Turkish street food is very diverse, from the simple bagel-type snack Simit to the familiar pizza-type Lahmacun, there are tons of variants to just about anything. 

● Turkish coffee is world renowned, but it’s also a bit different than say, its American counterpart -  It is usually a strong coffee with a rich aroma, served very hot from a small traditional cup. Be careful not to drink any of the coffee grounds still in the cup.

● Turkish delight, as the name suggests, can be a really sweet delight for tourists. It is made from sugar, starch and just about any fruit or aroma imaginable, including walnuts, hazelnuts, pistachios, dates, lemon, orange, rosewater and many others. Turkish delight is usually served with coffee and it became popular all around the world, including in the Balkans region and as far as Brazil and North America.

Sinus Lift FAQ

What happens if my sinus membrane gets torn during the sinus lift surgery?

The surgeon will first stitch it or place a patch over it. If that doesn’t work, the procedure is postponed until the membrane heals itself.

What happens if the graft material doesn’t integrate with my bone after the sinus lift?

In this case, the sinus lift surgery may need to be repeated.

Is sinus lift surgery safe?

Definitely – sinus augmentation is a safe and reliable procedure. Less than 10% of patients develop complications following this procedure. Following the surgeon’s instructions and taking any medications as prescribed is essential for the success of this procedure.
