Summary:

Endosseous dental implant surgery in the posterior maxilla requires the consideration of multiple factors, especially those of anatomic origin. Due to the reduced bone quality of the posterior maxilla, edentulism in this sextant often results in a resorbed osseous structure and a pneumatized maxillary sinus. When <5 mm of residual bone remains between the alveolar crest and the maxillary sinus, the traditional treatment option of choice prior to implant placement is subantral augmentation, more commonly known as the lateral window sinus lift. This approach to increasing bone available for placing implants uses a ‘‘window’’ in the lateral bony wall of the maxillary sinus to gain access to the underlying Schneiderian membrane. Although implant survival rates associated with this procedure routinely exceed 90%,the lateral window sinus lift remains a technique-sensitive procedure due to the high risk of Schneiderian membrane perforation and hemorrhagic complications, the latter of which is associated with the inadvertent laceration of the intraosseous arterial supply to this region.

Thinking Outside the Box in Sinus Augmentation- From Conventional to Minimal Invasive Approach
The lecture will focus on the concept of "thinking outside the box" in sinus augmentation, showing unconventional minimal invasive surgical manipulations which allows the clinician to reach the ultimate goal- bringing the patient the function and esthetics with his teeth even in cases with minimal crestal bone height, using autologous growth factors and minimal invasive anthral membrane balloon elevation.

Crestal Sinus Approach: A Hammerless Solution to the Indirect Sinus Lift Premium Member Content

Crestal Sinus Approach: A Hammerless Solution to the Indirect Sinus Lift
Posterior maxillary dental implant reconstruction for advanced alveorlar ridge atrophy has become possible through bone grafting procedures involving the maxillary sinus. This procedure involves augmentation of either the internal or external aspects of the sinus, or both. Bone grafting of the external aspect is performed with guided bone regeneration, using allogenic, autogenous, cortical, or corticocancellous grafts, as well as growth factors such as PRF as onlays with immediate or delayed implant placement. With the advent of new surgical techniques and equipment, sinus augmentation has become a predictable and efficient treatment. This presentation will focus on the internal, hammerless approach.

Tissue Engineering and Platelet Derived Growth Factors: Evidence Based Therapy
Platelet derived growth factors are now routinely utilized in reconstructive therapy. This presentation describes very detailed and evidence based guidelines for clinicians interested in enhancing their abilities in tissue engineering, especially as it relates to bone augmentation. Specifically, while successful bone augmentation requires the standard surgical parameters of space maintenance, low pressure on the grafts and tension-free flap closure, optimization of this goal requires management and enhancement of the local biological conditions with growth factors. Towards that end, platelet concentrates through the constant release of growth factors are able to promote and enhance new vascularization, provide plasma protein, normal lipidemia, as well as increased collagen and fibrin activity.

The Anatomical Foundation of Implant Surgery Premium Member Content

The Anatomical Foundation of Implant Surgery
Knowledge of Surgical Anatomy is a critical foundation for any clinician involved in implant dentistry. In order for dentists to perform safe and successful bone grafting, implant surgery as well as effectively manage complications, they must first be well versed in the fundamentals of Surgical Anatomy of the head region with emphasis on the Maxilla, Mandible, as well as the roof and floor of the mouth. This Dentalxp presentation, in part, describes the objectives of one component of a comprehensive hands-on surgical Anatomy course being offered live in partnership with Dentalxp. This section emphasizes the Surgical Anatomy of the Maxilla and Maxillary Sinus as an example of what is covered in one section of the course lectures.
