The sinus augmentation procedure needs to be safe and efficacious to create sufficient bone quality and quantity to place dental implants and restore them to function. Although this surgical procedure for treating the atrophied posterior maxilla prior to implant placement is now considered the standard of care for surgical practice, there are several different methods to perform this procedure. This course will demonstrate time-tested surgical techniques as well as emerging surgical techniques to achieve desired outcomes.

Educational Objectives:

• Recognize advantages and limitations of traditional and emerging sinus augmentation techniques.
• Learn to integrate time-proven and emerging sinus augmentation techniques.
• Evaluate different minimally-invasive approaches for sinus augmentation.
• Describe how to manage post-operative sinus augmentation complications, including membrane perforations and failed sinus grafts.
