Near the final part of the video, Dr V said that he would prefer to graft collagen in the area where he was not going to place implant in order to reduce the bone volume. What form of collagen? Does he mean using collagen membrane or collaplug? If membrane, does he roll them up, then place bone graft next to them? Or just place several collaplugs?

Dear Dr Furnari

Its is not necessary to make little perforations, you just need to make sure you release the schneiderian membrane from the mesial wall of the sinus, wich is the main blood suply zone from the sinus.
i always use bio-oss + PRGF, wich according to Dr Anitua's is the best option to fill up the sinus. i myself have excellent results with this technic.
i only use piezo for implant osteotomy, when i'm crist splitting and pacing implants at same surgical time.

hope i was usefull

Att Dr. Salama: I took your course with Dr. Pikos in June, just two weeks ago I was able to use the Piezoelectric for a bilateral sinus lift. BTI lent me the PRGF system and the proceedure went well. I have the following questions?
1)Is it necessary to make little perforations on the inside of the sinus floor to increase the blood supply? I don't recall Dr. Stephen Wallace or any one else reccomending this.
2)Why does Dr. Vercellotti not like to use Bio-Oss in his Sinus
lifts? I believe he said that he prefirs autogenous bone plus collagen only.
3) Lastly, do you like Piezo surgery for implant osteotmy ?

I would like to congratulate you and your team on this excelent dental forum.
Thank you very much
Best regards

Well Dr. Salama,

I agree with the advantages of the piezoelectric in sinus lift.
But I have doubts and I would like to know your opinion, on the new tips for implant site preparation for piezoelectric ?

Transcrestal Sinus Floor Elevation: Most Frequently Asked Questions Premium Member Content

Transcrestal Sinus Floor Elevation: Most Frequently Asked Questions
Over 20 years of clinical application and research on transcrestal sinus floor elevation (TSFE) procedures using a variety of implants, graft materials and instrumentation has proven its reliability, and versatility. 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.

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.

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.

The Effect of Piezoelectric Use on Open Sinus Lift Perforation: A Retrospective Evaluation of 56 Consecutively Treated Cases From Private Practices

The Effect of Piezoelectric Use on Open Sinus Lift Perforation: A Retrospective Evaluation of 56 Consecutively Treated Cases From Private Practices
The lateral window approach to maxillary sinus augmentation is a well-accepted treatment option in implant dentistry. The most frequent complication reported with traditional techniques has been the perforation of the Schneiderian membrane, with erforation rates ranging from 11% to 56%. The purpose of this retrospective, consecutive case series from two private practices was to report on the rate of Schneiderian membrane perforations and arterial lacerations when a piezoelectric surgical unit was used in conjunction with hand instrumentation to perform lateral window sinus elevations.
