You may lose upper teeth. In this case, there are ways to replace these teeth, such as implants and artificial teeth. If you choose implant treatment to replace your upper jaw teeth, you may also need a sinus lift supplemental treatment. This is a complementary treatment for places where there is not enough bone in the jaw. For example, the jaw bone is small in the upper jaw. In case of treatment, you should consider post-treatment care.
This care can be categorized into several stages.

After the sinus lift operation, do not wash the wound area vigorously. In addition, never touch the wound. These actions may cause the wound to bleed again. After the sinus lift, gently rinse your mouth several times with a diluted salt water solution.
A piece of sterile gauze is placed on the tooth extraction or operation site to reduce bleeding. This gauze should be kept on the scar for at least half an hour after the operation. This should be continued until the bleeding stops.
