Sinus bone grafting can be intimidating for many clinicians as well as for our patients.
In this lecture, we will discuss some common complications that can arise from sinus bone grafting as well as how to manage and avoid complications.
Four classifications of sinus morphology will be presented along with guidelines for avoiding morbidity while performing a sinus lift.
A step-by-step demonstration of the Crestal Window technique will be shown along with a narration of the entire process. A demonstration of the lateral window technique will also be shown where the sinus wall opening is made within 3 seconds using a specialized instrument. Furthermore, the same membrane that is lifted can be placed back into the original location.
In this lecture, we will also discuss short and wide implants and when is best to utilize them.
