Upper Molar/Internal Sinus Lift 3-D Scan Real Time Dental Implant Before and After Planning Video –Narrated by Ramsey Amin DDS

In the short video you will be able to get a sample of the awesome power of 3D planning for a dental implant and simultaneous internal sinus lift bone graft. You will see all the details that go into planning for a single tooth dental implant that happens to be more complex in nature.  If you have lost an upper molar, this video will be very helpful for you to understand and actually see the relationship of the sinus to the teeth. I show the plan workup through my eyes then I show you the immediate result.  This really helps to understand the process of a single tooth dental implant to replace an upper molar where the sinus is very low.

Internal sinus lift dental implant x-rayThe bone graft used here was a combination of platelet rich fibrin (PRF) cow bone and human bone.  A computer generated guide was not used on this case. As of 2014 I believe that virtual planning should be done for all dental implants.  This technology is way too powerful to skip or just use regular x-rays.  It allows for both the patient and the Dr. to understand your unique situation and adds a tremendous degree of accuracy and safety to your dental implant procedure.

    I chipped off half wisdom tooth top right hitting rail snowboarding, and part of top was wiggling.. went into general dentist, and they suggested removing it, cause wasn’t enough to crown he thought. I felt rushed about it, and wished got second opinion. Now, feels like teeth don’t line up so well on the right side with the other bottom wisdom tooth and molar, feels like all my pressure lining up on the left side of mouth, feels like changed my bite and putting more pressure a few teeth away to the right top. I still have other 3 wisdom teeth, all real straight and not crooked, came in straight and healthy. I was wondering, I know it’s not the norm, but is it possible to get a small implant in that space where the wisdom tooth was top right, to even it out? I’m also a big grinder, wear a mouthguard when sleep. Having that tooth out top right, feels like making more pressure on my bite now, since nothing there that to catch the bottom wisdom tooth anymore.

      You may have actually hairline fractured your entire jaw causing your bite to be off. I would look into this a little bit deeper and just have your bite adjusted if a small fracture happened. This would be better than getting an implant

    I have consulted two periodontists about an implant on #15, where there is significant bone loss from infection: only about 3 mm shows on an X-ray; CT scan not yet done. Doctor A’s plan is to extract the tooth, do a bone graft, wait six months to see how well it takes, and only then assess whether or not a sinus lift is needed. On the other hand, Doctor B would do an internal sinus lift and bone graft simultaneous with the extraction. Doctor A’s plan is obviously more conservative, offering a chance of possibly avoiding a sinus lift, but if, after six months, a sinus lift is still required, the whole ordeal would be prolonged by another six months. I’m wondering if you have any thoughts on the best way to go? Thank you.

  3. Hi, I have read that implants are not recommended for people with autoimmune disorders/diseases. I have Sjogrens Syndrome and take a low dose of plaquenil. Many of my teeth have broken or been fractured. I am currently being looked at and reviewed for same day extraction and implant. Should I refrain from getting the implants and if so, what are better options?
    Thank you.

      Sjogren syndrome is a relative contraindication including the use of medication plaquenil. I would just suggest you be evaluated by an expert. Your procedures should not be ones that involve a lot of risk. Doing procedures that keep blood supply rather than depend on it may be your best option. These would be procedures such as bone leveling or bone widening. Of course age and other medical conditions can cause complexities or even make it easier.

      I hope this helps you a little bit

    Hello, I had 14 removed 3 months ago. The area had a lot of “mush” so was cleaned out the sinus hole got a plug and then collagen filled the area. No bone was put in. I just had a scan and so far no bone has formed. The doctor said give it 6 more weeks and maybe some bone will mineralize. I don’t feel hopeful. He would prefer 3 mill of bone for an implant. If I get this, I will then have a lift and bone put in plus the implant most likely placed at the same time. Does all of this sound like the correct protacal? If little or no bone forms in the next 6 weeks would you recommend a bridge? Chance of an implant failing too high if add bone since not much to start with? Have you seen this situation before? Would you have put bone in when the tooth was taken out or did the sinus need to heal before bone placed? Thank you!

      I have seen this many times before. No bone is likely to form with the technique you have described. I would just have a good lateral window sinus graft so that you can have more than adequate bone for a long lasting implant. If the bone is only 3mm, you will need the bigger sinus I have described.
      Make sure you are being seen by an experienced dentist. Good luck!!

        Thank you so much for your reply! I am a bit confused. I think you are saying in 6 weeks I probably still will not form any bone…I assume since the doctor didn’t put any in. This makes sense. I wish bone had been put in when the tooth was removed. I am at a new periodontist now. What do I do if I have no or minimal at best bone in 6 weeks? Is it smarter for me to get a bridge or do you think I still have a good chance of an implant if a graft and lift are done even though starting with nothing there? I don’t want to get one if the odds are low of success. I get the feeling my periodontist thinks if at least 3 mill is not there which is highly unlikely it will be there, I should get a bridge. He teaches all around the world and has an excellent reputation so I assume he is a good doctor. Apparently, I have a high sinus but since have had so much bone loss I would need a sinus lift with the bone graft. Maybe he thinks success chances are low if starting with zero bone and small space which makes the need for a lift too. Also, where the tooth was pulled my gum is really high which would make for a really long implant. It quite a bit above where the gum hit on the teeth next to it. This is because of the bone loss. As much as I want an implant, I need to be realistic about my situation. I appreciate any further feedback you have. Thank you!!

    I am having a right sinus graft and 3 implants 2,4,5 I do not do well with iv sedation even with anti nausea meds I still throw up afterwards. If I am relaxed and do not move during the 2 hour procedure is it necessary I be sedated? I have had a lot of dental work and tolerate it well with out sedation. I will take 10 mg of Valium before the procedure.

    1. RamseyAminDDS

      Don’t take the Valium without your DDS knowing. Thy can cause a serious problem. Some sinus lifts can be pretty intense. Hopefully in the IV you’re receiving an intravenous steroid which will help you tremendously. In the event I have a patient like you that has nausea I simply eliminate the main drug that causes the nausea. Most of the time that would be due to the narcotic such as fentanyl.
      Precedex is a great drug along with a Valium like medicine via IV. Hopefully they are already going into your vein for PRF and or PRP to help your bone graft work.
      Hope this helps.

        When I got to the appointment today I decided to not do any sedation or Valium, I just did not risk throwing up like I have in the past with IV sedation even with anti nausea meds. The procedure started around 12:20 and was completed at 1:50. It was painful at times but I got threw it. Home now doing the ice pack. I will do a floor up in a few days here to let others know how I am feeling.
        I appreciate Dr Ramsey you answering patients questions it really does help!

    Hello, Thank you for all the helpful information you provide. I had a toothache in a tooth that had an old crown over a route canal that was replaced a year ago. I think #14. Long story short I had a 3D scan which showed all the bone around the tooth gone and the membrane of the sinus gone with a big infection. Apparently it had to have been going on for some time. I have had zero symptoms until the tooth hurt last week. No air between teeth and mouth, no pain or drainage or any other symptoms I read I should have if I have this huge hole. The periodontist pulled the tooth, cleaned things out and put in a collegen ban aide and filled with collegen and a plug. No bone graft as he said membrane needs to heal first. I am to wait 4 months to see if heals and if some bone grows. Then get another 3D scan to see if implant possible or bridge. He thinks I have a slim chance of getting a bone gaft, sinus lift and implant since hole is so big and such bone loss. The teeth on either side seem fine. Does this sound like normal procedure? I have never heard of anyone who has had an infection eat all the bone and the sinus membrane especially with zero symptoms. Will the membrane grow back? What happens if it doesn’t? Is it ok to work out the next four months? I am an active person and it will be hard to not workout for a slim chance of not getting an implant. Thank you!

      I would not limit little my lifestyle either. Exercise is a good thing!

      Generally speaking, the sinus will clear itself, the membrane will repair and an implant with the sinus graft is definitely possible. I have treated 100s of patients that had pre-existing holes/perforations or even fistulas into the sinus with sinus bone grafting and dental implants.

      Your surgeon has to be comfortable opening the area and having a pre-existing hole to deal with. If they are not that I would suggest you find someone else.

    Dear dr Amin, this is a second post. The first one somehow disappeared. I am legally blind and it is very hard for me to type. After removal of the bridge I have three missing teeth-##2,3,4 in the upper jaw. Graft was done on#3 at the time of extraction – 11 weeks ago. After that I had 3d scan done. I need a sinus lift Also #1 has to be extracted
    My doctor recommends to do the extraction, sinus lift and ##2,3 implants at the same time. Can it be done this way ? # 4 will be taking care of later because of limited funds.
    The procedure is on01/4/2017. Thank you for your time.

    1. RamseyAminDDS

      Yes it can be done this way but ideally the other tooth would be implanted at the same time. This would make for more perfect alignment and spacing.

      Sounds like you are seeing somebody who is very experienced.

      I prefer the graft that you had healed for longer than just 12 weeks but I don’t know your exact circumstances.

  8. hi, dr Amin. After removal of the bridge because of erupted tooth I am missing 3 teeth in the upper jaw: #2,3,4 The#1 is going to be extracted. After removal of the erupted#3 bone grafting was done. 3d scan was done I need a sinus lift. My doctor suggested to do everything at once: #1 removal, sinus lift for#3 and implants for #2 and #3.
    #4 will be taken care of later because of limited funds. Is it a right approach. The procedure is scheduled for January 4/2017.
    Your reply will be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Dr. Amin,
    My molar tooth #14 need to be extracted & I’m thinking of implant on the same day of extraction, will I have a sinus lift? My # 3 upper molar has been removed 4 months ago, how long can I wait for in implant to avoid sinus left?
    Thank you for all the information you have posted in your site, very interesting & informative. I’m still reading & watching the videos. I may have more questions.

      looks like you found the post that I was mentioning to you. Implants for upper molars on the same day are technically difficult and are typically done by a very experienced dental implant provider. There is significant risk of failure and sinus perforation. A sinus lift may or may not be avoidable. This depends on your anatomy. I would suggest a minimum length for a dental implant in this area to be 10 mm for most situations. Trying to undersize and use a small implant will result in bone loss called peri-implantitis. This is because the bone is very soft in this area and the molars undergo a tremendous amount of pressure.

    I’ve had some bad experiences with some dentists….now I’m kind of afraid of them. My upper right side molers are gone, and now I have a receding gum near my tooth that is now a cavity, and am really living in pain everyday, and the 2 teeth below them are hurting as well and feel like they might have gum disease….I know implant cost a lot….but I don’t have money like that and this is clearly ruining my life….for a year I haven’t slept normal yet….Im always mad, in deep thought…..I can’t talk normally anymore without responding angry. I lost slot of weight over the course of a year. Im embarrassed to laugh. My breath is always bad…..and this has put a high burden on getting work…..I need help, I’m crying here…..I’ve been in and out of emergency rooms for over a year….I take Advil all day, I’ve been prescribed terrible pain medicine that irony work, as well s as seeping pills….I’ve been on antibiotics 5-6 Times in a year…..My mouth muscles are getting distorted, my mouth is either dry, or develops excessive saliva. Now im being told to see a psychologist, but I’m in pain and am in extremely discomforting circumstances. Im an artist and dance teacher for kids and can not continue if I can’t explain things verbally and properly. Please give me a remedy.

      Hi Jake,

      What a heart breaking story. There is hope. First off, consider having all of your dental work done under IV sedation anesthesia. This will make 2-3 hour dental appointments feel like 2-3 minutes. I do this 1-3 times a day for the last 15 years and it really helps patients your fearful of dentistry and who have had very negative experiences.

      You may want to consider extraction of all teeth and having traditional dentures made if finances are an issue. The other much better option would be fixed dental implant Bridges such as the Prettau implant bridge. It sounds like all of your teeth are in really bad shape and may not be able to be saved. The health of our mouth plays a big role on the health of our body and of course are emotions. I have seen many patients go through tremendous positive change in their life from just having their teeth restored to health, function and beauty.

      I hope you’re able to do something soon.

    Hello Dr. Amin,
    I tried to post before but it may have not been done correctly. I am trying to assess what is the next best route for me as my dentist just extracted my #2 upper molar. I was experiencing intense pain, what I later learned to be from an infection. The bone had deteriorated enough that there was no saving, along with the fact that the root was exposed. Almost 4 years ago I learned that I had severe gum recession which exposed the root of #2. I also tend to grind my teeth during my sleep.

    My dentist stated that I could go to an oral surgeon for a sinus lift, wait six months, get a bone graft and wait another six months for an implant. I think I got the order right, either way, it was going to be a year and a half. I have concerns from reading your articles of bone recession around the implant with patients with gum disease and grinding. I also have a concern about the socket now being empty and that I am further losing bone.

    My logic tells me to consult an oral surgeon and I assume it would be better to receive a sinus lift and bone graft now than later? Could you provide me any recommendations? Further, do you know of any dentists in the New York City area practicing the use of the patients own blood for recovery?

      Hi Phillip,

      The timeline of about 1 year sounds correct. You will likely need a lateral window sinus bone graft. This is different than the internal sinus lifts that you watched on this 3-D planning video.

      With only 3.5 mm of bone, the chance of doing a predictable, long-lasting internal sinus lift is not good especially in the position of tooth #2 rather than tooth #3. The anatomy is different.

      This is an area that I would suggest you treat very slowly. Because you grinds your teeth, the bone must be loaded carefully and you must have an implant of adequate size and length to support and upper second molar. I highly doubt you need a gum graft along with a bone graft in the area of tooth #2. This is more common in the upper front or lower front teeth. Your gumline can simply be repositioned to create more gum by how it is cut and sutured rather than having to add bone. This is called a split thickness flap dissection with apical repositioning. Sorry for all the technical terms.

      Then the York area you should not have a problem finding a Diplomate of the American Board of Oral Implantology that can handle a case as complex as yours.

  12. Hello, I am a patient with gum disease that surrounded my #2 upper right molar. Had this diagnosed a few years ago. My gums receded enough at the time to expose the root some and I was told by the periodontist that it may last only a few years. Just over New Years I had serious pain there and learned from the dentist the following day that I had another infection and subsequently loss more bone requiring the tooth to be extracted. I was told I had about 3.56 mm of bone up until the sinus.

    The dentist advised that I could find an oral surgeon to perform a sinus lift, heal 6 months and then do a bone graft and wait another 6 months to heal before an implant. His estimate was that it could be up to a year and a half. I also suffer from grinding my teeth at night.

    Given what you have been told, do you have any recommendations on how to proceed? I read about your simultaneous sinus lift and bone graft wondered whether this is something suitable for me.
    I also now have any empty socket that I am worried will collapse on itself complicating my future efforts for a successful implant.

    My other concern was trying to increase the odds that if sinus lift and bone graft was successful along with implant to lessen the chance of losing any further bone. Also, would I need a gum graft to repair the wall that previously exposed the root.
    I am 36 years old from Queens New York, are there any doctors you would recommend here?

There aren't enough words (and I have a lot of words) to tell you how grateful I am to have found Dr. Ramsey Amin and his wonderful staff. I had an enormous amount of bone loss and I was hopeless after being treated by a different doctor for two years. I had multiple procedures such as gum graft, extractions, and a sinus lift. After all of that, the doctor released me and told me he could not help me any longer. He sent me to a large teaching hospital - who also had no idea how to help me. I was terrified and embarrassed. I had been missing teeth due to those procedures since 2017. That sent me out on a journey of meeting with no less than five different dentist/oral surgeons. Most of them shamed me for the bone loss and wondered what I had done to cause this. In reality, I had done nothing. The bone loss is my body's immune system fighting me, as well as hereditary traits. In fact not only was I having difficulty being able to have implants, I also had so much bone loss that I was also not a candidate for dentures. I researched "what to do when you have bone loss and can't get implants" and I found Dr. Amin's website. Then I researched him, read his reviews, watched every one of his You Tube videos. I called and got an appointment, and kept going to consultations with other providers. I had long since stopped smiling and being social. Missing teeth and the shaming was affecting my life so adversely. When I met with Dr. Amin for my consultation he was ready. He had all of my records and had already reviewed my scans. But more than that, he genuinely wanted to get to know about my life. He was/is authentic, kind and extremely professional with so much success and experience in difficult cases like mine. He worked up a treatment plan & I came back two weeks later to discuss my options...and the journey began. I have had three procedures under IV sedation, no pain, no narcotics needed for aftercare. Dr. Amin is a consumate, experienced oral surgeon who cares about your health & understands your fears. He communicates every step of the way and will provide you with all the information you need to make a decision to improve your health. I am still working toward my end goal, and we had to zig from traditional implants and zag to zygomatic implants instead...which is the reason I chose him in the first place. If there was nothing else that could be done to get me healthy & smiling again, I knew he would have that option to help me. And of course 2020, the year of CV-19. Don't worry, Dr. Amin & his staff follow all health & safety protocols. This review is long, because it is important you know my journey, so you might understand how fortunate I feel to be healing. I'm torn, because this place is like a great restaurant, I want to shout from the rooftops how great it is, how great he is. And at the same time, I want to keep this all to myself. I come 75 miles each way to see him. I know people travel from all over the world for his expertise. Do yourself a favor, have a consultation. You won't regret it. Dr. Amin is amazing and so is his staff.

I cannot speak highly enough of Dr. Amin and his professional staff. I have to start off and say that I am absolutely TERRIFIED of the dentist due to several past experiences. I found myself putting this off for YEARS until I was referred over to Dr. Amin. I was petrified on my first visit... but he along with his WONDERFUL staff made me feel so calm and at ease. I had quite a bit of work that needed to be done, but we found the perfect plan that worked out for me, and I couldn't be happier. Words cannot express my gratitude to each and every staff member that made me feel safe and comfortable. Dr. Amin was always so attentive in asking if I was ever in pain... and I never was. These are truly remarkable individuals, and I'm so lucky to have a dentist that I can trust. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE each and every one of you! Thank you,

I cannot say enough positive things about Dr. Amin and his staff. I originally found them on Yelp about two years ago. I needed an implant, front tooth of all places, and was extremely nervous not only about surgery but about how it would turn out. Let me just say I just adore the staff. Everyone is crazy friendly and the whole office has a very positive vibe. The staff is adorable and always has me smiling by the time I leave. They are all thorough and on-point about what they do, and I truly appreciate it. They are quick to respond to my emails no matter the question, and their appointment reminders are great too. Dr. Amin is very thorough and reassuring, and answered any questions my husband or I had. My regular dentist had questions about the procedure and Dr. Amin's office even reached out to them at my request (my dentist said they never received a call, but Dr. Amin's staff had date, time and notes - love the thoroughness!). After surgery the Dr. called to leave me a message about how it went. Very minimal pain during healing, never any pain during any visits. It took a few tries to get everything just right for the permanent crown (color, etc), but the end result is beyond fantastic! At one point during healing I thought I was experiencing some looseness or wiggling but unfortunately couldn't make it to the office. When I was finally able to make it in the Dr. was so relieved, bless his heart. Luckily it was just a false alarm and everything checked out ok. They're a bit further out from me, but I wanted the best. I sure found it! I wish they were my regular dentist, and I'm looking forward to seeing them again for my check-up which was delayed due to COVID.

I found Dr. Amin a few years back after I hadn't been to a dentist in a decade. Many traumatic dental experiences in childhood have made me so phobic that even getting a cleaning was a knee-knocking, heart-pounding trial. But finally I couldn't put off some things any longer. During my first anesthesia session, Dr. Amin replaced five old metal fillings, and during the second he did three more plus a crown. I was completely comfortable, and never felt a thing. Because they were extra-long sessions, I did sleep for about 12 hours after, but the next day I felt just fine. This past week, my back top tooth cracked in half and fell out of my mouth, and a couple days later the crown on the remainder of the tooth fell out too! Despite being nervous about Covid 19, I had to get it taken care of, so I called and quizzed the staff about precautions, which turned out to be even above and beyond what I would have expected. So yesterday I went for the tooth extraction and plug. After they put on the blood pressure cuff and put in the IV, I gradually got a little tired and closed my eyes. I sat there for about 10 minutes and thought Gee, I wonder if they're going to get started any time soon, and a minute later Dr. Amin said "Wake up, you're all done!" That was a short session, and I didn't have the kind of fatigue I did my first time. I stayed up most of the evening. Today, everything is good! I'm taking my antibiotic and eating soft foods, and there is surprisingly little pain now that the numbness has worn off. The tooth site and my cheek are a little sore, and the corner of my mouth, and I have a very slight headache, but nothing to any great level--I'm not even taking the acetaminophen. I feel good, and wide awake. Thanks to everyone at the office for a comfortable and professional job! I really REALLY appreciate you for giving me painless dental experiences!

What can I say about Dr. Amin he is the best! I'm so grateful for him. He has literally changed my life and given me the confidence to smile more. I had major restorative dental work done and everything went smoothly. Dr. Amin is very compassionate and he really cares about his patients he made me feel comfortable and cared for. He is very knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor. His office is very clean and they take the patients health and safety very serious. His staff is also amazing they made me feel very welcomed and important. I'm so happy I did my research and found Dr. Amin.  Thank you Dr. Amin and team.

Two implants done! Finished all procedures and I couldn't be happier. It's the first time in years I looked forward to going to the dentist. Even during Covid life the staff and Dr. Amin took care of me. There is a possibility I may move to Long Beach but I would still travel to keep Dr. Amin as my dentist.

I could not ask for a more caring, exceptionally knowledgeable dental care provider. He's not just a dentist, but someone who looks after your immediate dental needs and helps you plan and prepare for the future.

I've been going to Dr. Amin since I turned 16 and have been going since. Before going to Dr. Amin's dental office, I had 4 crowns that I was not happy with and dealt with it until finally I asked Dr. Amin and because I  feel comfortable and because I trust him with his work I recently had my crowns fixed and worked on by  Dr. Amin and have never loved my smile the way I do now, I can actually enjoy my pictures, I can enjoy my smile from either angle and that really mattered to me. Thank you so much Dr. Amin still and will be in love with MY smile

I've been coming to Dr. Ramsey for about five years and I have to say, he is by far the best dentist I've had - ever. The staff is professional and kind, the office is exceptionally well maintained, and Dr. Ramsey is careful and extremely knowledgeable about current developments and research in dentistry. I recently had a dental implant which was a long process but well worth it. I required a sinus lift as well as a bone graft. The surgery went off without a hitch, I was comfortable and the healing process was quick and without complication. Highly recommend!!

This is my 1st review of Dr. Amin, and in my over 17 years of being with him, my experiences with Dr. Amin and his staff have always been positive.  I don't recall a bad experience with the several implant procedures i have had.  They run an efficient office.  I like that they are proactive and reach out to their patients to remind us of routine care needed.  Dr. Amin's bedside care is impeccable.  They are also technologically up to date in terms of sending out texts as reminders, ability to incorporate any appointment into your mobile phone.  That is certainly a plus.  Keep up the great care!!!
