Crestal Approaches for Implant Placement & Sinus Augmentation

At this course the attendees will be given a step by step description of how to handle
sinus augmentations, from a crestal approach, for sinus floor thicknesses that are less
than 3 mm, 4 to 6 mm, and greater than 7 mm. The lecture will include patient selection
criteria, preoperative planning, a thorough description of the use of drills with stops,
navigation systems, and the use of crestal window approaches. Video of the techniques
will be shown to illustrate the relatively simple and minimally invasive technique. In
addition, the techniques for simultaneous sinus augmentation with implant placement
will be shown. The use of Leukocyte- and Platelet-Rich Fibrin (L-PRF) to hydrate
the grafts and enhance initial healing will be discussed and included in a hands-on
training portion. The evidence for the use of this material will also be presented.
This approach minimizes the need for lateral window approaches, which can result in
patient post-operative conditions that limit their ability to return to work. The crestal
approach patients usually use non-narcotic pain medication and return to work the
next day.
