One of the fundamental principles in oral rehabilitation is the fact that the posterior dentition plays a vital role in support and protection of the anterior teeth. As a result, satisfactory and predictable procedures to maintain or re-establish posterior dental support is absolutely essential to the long-term health and stability of the dental system specifically and the stomatognathic system in general. With the loss of maxillary posterior teeth, the pneumatic of the maxillary sinus into the alveolar process will completely eliminates the available bone to support dental implants.
This course describes the options available to the surgical clinician in managing all aspects of vertical bone grafting in the maxillary sinus for the purpose of placing dental implants in or around the area of that sinus. These include vertically placed implants for the localized rehabilitation for the maxillary posterior teeth as well as management of the maxillary sinus for “tilted” posterior implants and “zygomatic” implants. Emphasis will be given to the diagnosis of antral pathology and the procedures required to minimize complications of these graft surgeries.
One-on-one hands-on surgical instruction is available to those doctors wishing to bring patients to this course. Auditing doctors will be able to observe these surgeries and bay be able to participate as surgical assistant from time to time. A live demonstration surgery will be viewable by all participants during this course.
