Vertigo after crestal sinus lift

120 Rating(s).

Posted on By laurent oiknine In Implants

Implants were placed yesterday. The most distal one needed a crestal sinus lift wich was made with Neobiotech burs ( No osteotomes and mallet). Menbrane was confirmed by touch, lifted, PRF was introduced beneath it, then 10mm implant was placed with 4mm membrane lift. Xray shows the tenting effect.
Patient woke up this morning with severe vertigo and nausea.
Any ideas on how to treat it. Gravol? Decongestants ? and how long it could last?
