Course Description

This course is designed for specialists and general practitioners who are interested in enhancing their sinus lift techniques for dental implant cases.
Depending on tooth position, maxillary extractions can create bone recession and allow the sinus cavity to drop into the void. By using bone augmentation in the sinus floor, the sinus membrane can be raised to its proper position and enable implant placement without disrupting the sinus cavity. The method of maxillary sinus augmentation is dependent on patient anatomy, residual bone height and clinician preference. This course will address both the lateral window (direct) approach and osteotome sinus floor elevation (vertical/indirect) approach. Attendees will learn about the anatomical and radiographic structure of the sinus, interpretation of follow up imaging of maxillary grafts, and sinus grafting complications.
  • Hands-on training is included to demonstrate osteotome techniques, vertical vs. lateral lifts, and comparison of graft materials. Surgical procedure videos will demonstrate how to incorporate these techniques into your practice.
