Maxillary Sinus Membrane Repair: Update on Technique for Large and Complete Perforations
Maxillary sinus membrane perforation is the most common complication that occurs with sinus elevation augmentation surgery. A technique using a slow resorbing type I collagen membrane for repair of large and complete sinus membrane perforations is described. The biocompatibility and semirigid structural integrity of this membrane, along with external tack fixation, allows for optimal membrane stabilization and maintenance. (Implant Dent 2008;17:24–31)
Sinus Floor Augmentation With Simultaneous Implant Placement In Severely Atrophic Maxilla
DENTAL IMPLANT PLACEMENT ASSOCIATED augmentation of the sinus floor in the severely atrophic maxilla can be performed in 1- or 2 surgical stages depending on the height of the residual alveolar bone.
Healing in Smokers Versus Nonsmokers: Survival Rates for Sinus Floor Augmentation with Simultaneous Implant Placement
Evidence suggests that smoking is detrimental to the survival of dental implants placed in grafted maxillary sinuses. Studies have shown that improving bone quantity and quality, using rough- surfaced implants, and practicing good oral hygiene may improve outcomes. In this prospective study, the long-term survival rates of implants placed simultaneously with sinus grafting in smokers and non- smokers were compared.
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.
Maxillary Molar Extraction and Immediate Implant Placement with Crestal Sinus Lift
Atraumatic maxillary molar extraction via root sectioning followed by hydraulic crestal sinus lift and immediate implant placement. Sinus lift performed at interradicular area with sinus membrane elevated approximately 3 mm with specialized kit using saline injected through osteotomy. Hydraulic pressure gently raises the sinus membrane without risk of perforation.
Surgical Considerations for Sinus Augmentation - Part 1
Dr. Michael Pikos demonstrates the step-by-step procedure to perform lateral window sinus augmentation.
Sinus Augmentation - Current and Future Trends
In this presentation, Dr. Ziv Mazor reviews present techniques as well as detailing the latest innovations in sinus augmentation. Specifically, Dr. Mazor pays special focus to new materials and techniques involving both the crestal as well as the lateral window 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.
Sinus Floor Elevation: A Clinical, Radiographic and Histologic Overview
This presentation and imbedded HD videos will highlight the important aspects of the Sinus Lift procedure and how to increase the success rate while minimizing complications.
An overview of the procedure with detail radiographic planning and follow up outcomes will be displayed and histoligical results highlighted to gain an appreciation of the timing of bone fill and when you can place and load implants in the augmented sinus. Complications and their management will be equally covered with an impetus on case and patient management and follow up care. Common medications and techniques for each procedure will be noted.
