The Role of Orthodontics in the Multidisciplinary Treatment of Complex Cases
Today´s practice requires a team approach that will be presented. In order to meet the patient´s demands for better esthetics and to obtain long term occlusal stability of our results.

Transcrestal Sinus Floor Elevation: The MFAQs (Most Frequently Asked Questions)
As a less invasive alternative to the lateral window osteotomy, many clinicians are anxious to expand its clinical utilization, but are reluctant to do so, based on perceived limitations and confusion generated by the myriad of reported modifications, all proclaiming simplicity with more sinus elevation at reduced risk. While improving upon the original osteotome technique they have not yet eliminated the need for a more invasive lateral approach, especially at sites with very limited (1-2 mm) sub-antral bone. Extensive analysis of the existing research and long-term clinical experience will provide the answers to the most pertinent questions surrounding the transcrestal approach including but not limited to: patient selection, clinical limitations, instrumentation, graft selection/necessity and management of membrane perforations.
