Maxillary sinus lift surgery and grafting are considered to be one of the trickiest surgeries in implant dentistry. However, it has been shown to greatly increase your chances of successful implants that can last for years to come.
With many considerations required, detailed case diagnostics and treatment planning are necessary for predictable results. Understanding anatomy and physiology of the maxillary sinus and different surgical protocols are keys to successful surgeries. The course will offer a lecture, video, and hands-on workshop, as it focuses on all aspects of sinus augmentation: from the “classic” lateral window approach to a number of crestal and internal techniques. The numerous gadgets, devices, and approaches will be discussed with clinical examples to discern “the good,” “the bad,” and “the not-so pretty” side of this arena.
