This course is ideally for:

  • Dentists that ALREADY surgically place implants and want to learn to use sinus lifts and
  • Dentists that already do sinus lifts and want to EXPAND and UPDATE their knowledge base.

This comprehensive, interactive and updated for 2024 course will expand your knowledge base and clinical skills for management of sinus cases.  This course will cover choosing the most appropriate Sinus Lift approach; Crestal versus Lateral.

Through both lecture and participation activities, you will learn the fundamentals of sinus elevation, treatment planning and surgical techniques available to augment sinuses.

By the end of this course you will learn:

  • Anatomy and limitations of the sinus
  • Treatment planning and radiography including CBCT
  • Bio Materials – an overview in relation to sinus
  • Bio activators PRF
  • Crestal and Lateral Approach instrumentation and techniques
  • Complications Management
  • Post-surgical Management

Hands-On exercises will be performed both days on models.

  • Various techniques for successful sinus crestal approach
  • Lateral & crestal approach exercises on models including implant placements
  • PRF Protocols
  • Phlebotomy and processing PRF; attendees are encouraged but not required, to draw blood on each other.
  • Elevating and managing flaps for lateral sinus approach
  • Identifying landmarks to locate anatomical sinus floor without radiographs
  • Opening protocols to access the Sinus
  • Instrumentation for lateral sinus and techniques to release membrane
  • Preparing the site for grafting with or without membranes, mixing graft materials and graft insertion
  • Wound Closure
  • Suturing techniques to achieve tension free closure

Upon Completion of this course, you will learn:

  • Selection criteria of crestal vs lateral sinus approach
  • How to obtain initial stability at the sinus floor
  • Various crestal sinus approaches
    • hydraulic pressure technique
    • anatomy oriented lateral sinus technique
  • Complications management
  • Sinus membrane repair technique and management of mucous retention cyst.
  • Maximizing bone regeneration at sinus cavity and sinus wound healing.
