Event description

Description

Implants in the Posterior Maxilla and Sinus Augmentation:
Decision making for long-term success

COURSE OVERVIEW

Already from the early days of implant dentistry, posterior maxilla has been identified as a challenging site, with higher failures and increased complications. Limitations of the anatomy, the neighbouring sinus and the often compromised quality and volume of the alveolar ridge, as well as restorative implications have lead to the development of specific techniques and protocols in order to overcome problems and ensure lasting successful outcomes when placing implants in the posterior maxilla.

A diversity of techniques has been proposed for the augmentation of the alveolar ridge and the maxillary sinus, involving a variety of instruments and recently the increasing use of short implants. From minimally invasive transalveolar approaches with ridge expanders or ossteotomes to lateral window and the use of piezoelectric surgery, the key to success remains the proper assessment of the patient and the local anatomy and the proper plan of both the surgical and restorative treatment. At the same time a wide variety of biomaterials is available, from autologous bone to allografts, different xenografts and synthetic grafts or combinations. When faced with the posterior maxilla, the clinician has a wide array of rehabilitation protocols and procedures, the choice of which be driven by the best available evidence and the individual systemic and anatomic characteristics of the patient.

This course will discuss the anatomy of posterior maxilla focusing on the challenges faced when planning for implant rehabilitation. It will present a comprehensive pathway to selecting the right treatment approach on the basis of the available evidence and best practice, followed by step-by-step discussions of transalveolar and lateral window procedures. Finally, the participants will have the chance to practice hands-on microsurgical approach of the current protocols for both transalveolar and lateral window sinus augmentation with the use of piezoelectric surgery on custom-made plastic models.
