Symptoms of a Failed Sinus Lift Bone Augmentation

0 votes
I had a sinus lift on Jan 6 with augmentation. I have been very congested since thins and using a salt rinse. How would I be able to know if the sinus lift failed? What are the symptoms to look for? Would an infection show up on a CT?

This is a question for the surgeon that performed the sinus lift.  PLEASE make an appointment IMMEDIATELY to see your surgeon, the ongoing congestion may be a matter for serious concern..  If for any reason you are not satisfied or unsure about his/her evaluation seek a second opinion from a qualified dental surgeon or ENT doctor.

You should be receiving ongoing observations during the healing period.  I generally see my patients to monitor healing at 2, 4, 8 and 16 weeks, more frequently if necessary.  If there are any signs or symptoms they are dealt with accordingly.
