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.

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.

Healing in Smokers Versus Nonsmokers: Survival Rates for Sinus Floor Augmentation with Simultaneous Implant Placement

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.

Sinus Augmentation with rhBMP-2 and Simultaneous Nonsubmerged Implant Placement
This case features the use of rhBMP-2 and mineralized allograft for grafting the partially pneumatized left maxillary sinus along with simultaneous placement of a large diameter implant in a nonsubmerged mode into the maxillary left second bicuspid site. The step-by-step surgical protocol will focus on incision design, lateral window osteotomy, membrane elevation and repair, the use of rhBMP-2 for bone grafts, and simultaneous non-submerged implant placement.

Prevention and Treatment of Post-Operative Infections After Sinus Elevation Surgery
Maxillary sinus surgery is a reliable and predictable treatment option for the prosthetic rehabilitation of the atrophic maxilla. Nevertheless, these interventions are not risk-less of postoperative complications with respect to implant positioning in pristine bone. The aim of this lecture is to report the results of a clinical consensus of experts (periodontists, implantologists, maxillofacial surgeons, ENT, and microbiology specialists) on several clinical questions and to give clinical recommendations on how to prevent, diagnose, and treat postoperative infections.
