Core 5: Maxillary Sinus Grafting & Management


Core 5: Maxillary Sinus Grafting & Management

The predictable management of the Maxillary Sinus requires an understanding of the treatment options including direct and indirect site preparation for placement of dental implants. It is also imperative to understand the possible pathologies of the Maxillary Sinus and, therefore, the treatment differences accordingly.

This 3-day (30 CE) course will include these learning topics:

  • Requirements for evaluating and determining the health status of the Maxillary Sinus,
  • Understanding the pathology related to the Maxillary Sinus and subsequent treatment options,
  • Working with a physician/ENT in the management of infected Maxillary Sinuses,
  • Management of soft tissue and hard tissue tuberosities,
  • Lateral access (Direct) procedures for single and multi-lobulated sinuses,
  • Crestal access (Indirect) procedures for single implant placement,
  • Direct and Indirect subnasal elevation grafts,
  • When to consider direct or indirect treatment protocols,
  • How to manage sinus membrane perforations and other complications.

There will be hands-on workshops with goats head and models each day to gain familiarity with these procedures.
