Maxillary Sinus Membrane Repair: Update on Technique for Large and Complete Perforations

Alternative Applications of Guided Surgery: Precise Outlining of the Lateral Window in Antral Sinus Bone Grafting
Computed tomography (CT) and the application of CT-based guided implant surgery allow clinicians to
provide enhanced precision and accuracy in implant surgery. Because of the difficulty in transferring a
patient’s often complex anatomic sinus configurations, as viewed on a preoperative CT scan, into precise
osteotomy cuts at antral bone graft surgery, a prototype cutting guide was developed. The surgical guide
was developed through the use of CT imaging and the stereolithographic process to precisely position the lateral window, facilitating schneiderian membrane elevation. This report demonstrates the step-by-step method to
perform precise guided sinus window preparation using computer software and a stereolithographically
generated surgical guide.
Bone-to-Implant Apposition with Machined and MTX Microtextured Implant Surfaces in Human Sinus Grafts
The goal of this study was to histologically document the effect of two different
implant surfaces on the percentage of bone-to-implant apposition achieved with
implants placed in human sinus grafts.
Zygomatic Implant Placement in Conjuction with Sinus Bone Grafting: The "Extended Sinus Elevation Technique." A Case-Cohort Study
The zygomatic implant in mainly indicated for the rehabilitation of extremely atrophied maxillae when bone augmentation should be avoided. One Drawback of zygomatic implants, which typically pass through the sinus, is initial or late bone resorption around the implant neck, which can result in oroantral communications followed by possible infection of the sinus. To decrease the risk of sinus infection, a modified technique was developed to preserve the integrity of the sinus membrane and to regenerate bone around zygomatic implants using an extended sinus grafting approach.
Sinus Lift Procedures - A Critical Clinical Review - Part 2
In this presentation, we will give a critical review of different sinus grafting techniques (lateral approach, crestal approach) based on clinical long term results along with radiographic and histological aspects.
Efficient and Atraumatic Combination Techniques for Maxillary Sinus Augmentation
This video will demonstrate two current state of the art techniques in Maxillary Sinus Augmentation.
Managing Complications and Challenges in Sinus Augmentation
This presentation and surgical video demonstrates the corrective management of multiple infection and sinusitis following an earlier attempt at sinus augmentation. Dr. Sohn demonstrates the step-by-step clinical approach to this challenging sequelae that implant surgeons working in the posterior maxilla must be prepared for.
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.
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.
