Course Description:
The maxillary posterior edentulous region presents a challenging condition for dental implant placement. Alveolar bone resorbtion and increased pneumatization of the sinus cavity reduce the amount of alveolar
bone necessary to maintain a predictable implant-supported prosthesis. This problem can be overcome by grafting the maxillary sinus floor which provides a sufficient quantity of bone for the placement of endosteal dental implants to support a prosthetic reconstruction.

The purpose of this course is to give the theoretical background for being these kinds of procedures as well as the step-by-step surgical guidelines using state of the art grafting materials, instrumentation and utilization of growth factors. Special emphasis will be given on complications and failures associated with sinus augmentation together with ways to avoid them both pre and post operatively.

Course Objectives:
  • Diagnosis and treatment plan the rehabilitation of the posterior maxilla
  • Evaluate the surgical approaches and techniques for sinus lifts
  • Comprehend different grafting materials for sinus augmentation
  • Comprehend the use of advanced surgical instrumentation such as Piezosurgery in sinus augmentation procedures
  • Learn how to utilize autologous growth factors
  • Learn how to utilize and treat complications associated with sinus augmentation procedures
