Contemporary treatment of the atrophic posterior maxilla: maxillary sinus surgery and alternative treatments
October 26 and 27, 2018
Sinus elevation surgery has become an indispensable part of the practice of implant surgery, periodontics, and oral surgery. Procedures have evolved during the last 30 years to a point where sinus grafting surgery is considered the most successful augmentation procedure performed today and the survival rate of implants placed in grafted sinus is comparable to implants placed in the non-grafted posterior maxilla. The sinus elevation procedure is still evolving today due to the development of new surgical techniques and new biomimetic technologies.
This two–day course will be held by leading sinus elevation experts involved in clinical practice, teaching, and research activities. The two-day course will present sinus elevation surgery and possible alternatives to sinus surgery. Anatomic models will be utilized to give participants a hands-on introduction to the lateral window approach. This hands-on experience will include both traditional rotary techniques and piezoelectric surgical techniques. Multiple video presentations and live surgery will enable participants to realistically experience sinus elevation surgery. The course will present both evidence-based and new state-of-the-art techniques.
