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.

Sinus Augmentation for Single-Tooth Replacement in the Posterior Maxilla: A 3-Year Follow-up Clinical Report
A technique for single-tooth sinus lift and simultaneous implant placement in the posterior maxilla is presented. Ten hydroxyapatite-coated cylindric implants, 13 to 15 mm in length, were placed together with a composite bone graft of demineralized freeze-dried bone allograft and autogenous bone in 10 adults. Surgical technique and anatomic considerations are discussed. Follow-up of 3 years showed successful function and no cervical bone loss in all patients.

Controlling Systematic Perioperative Anaerobic Contamination During Sinus-Lift Procedures by Using Metronidazole: An Innovative Approach

Controlling Systematic Perioperative Anaerobic Contamination During Sinus-Lift Procedures by Using Metronidazole: An Innovative Approach
Analysis of tomodensitometric controls following sinus grafts clearly demonstrates a quite systematic lack of homogeneity. Sinus contamination by anaerobic bacteria seems almost unavoidable during bone graft surgery, and this problem may jeopardize the healing process.The aim of this study was to characterize in a systematic way the nonhomogeneities observed at 1,2,or 3 months post surgery within allogenous sinus grafts,and to assess the possible influence of a 0.5% sterile solution of metronidazole in corporated in the sinus bonegraft.

Emerging Concepts in Sinus Augmentation; Atraumatic and Efficient Crestal and Lateral Access Techniques
This presentation will highlight through in depth clinical case documentation, the new and evolving role of instrumentation for access to the Sinus for Bone Augmentation. Efficiency and minimally invasive approaches which increase success and minimize complications will be highlighted. Posterior Maxillary reconstruction often involves Sinus Augmentation and Implants then inserted into the grafted site. A knowledge of useful and clinically manageable techniques that provide access but minimize large surgical flaps and sinus membrane perforations are keys to success.
