Summary:

Computed tomography (CT) and the application of CT-based guided implant surgery allow clinicians to provide enhanced precision and accuracy in implant surgery. Because of the difficulty in transferring a patient’s often complex anatomic sinus configurations, as viewed on a preoperative CT scan, into precise osteotomy cuts at antral bone graft surgery, a prototype cutting guide was developed. The surgical guide was developed through the use of CT imaging and the stereolithographic process to precisely position the lateral window, facilitating schneiderian membrane elevation. This report demonstrates the step-by-step method to perform precise guided sinus window preparation using computer software and a stereolithographically generated surgical guide.

Maxillary Sinus Membrane Repair: Update on Technique for Large and Complete Perforations
Maxillary sinus membrane perforation is the most common complication that occurs with sinus elevation augmentation surgery. A technique using a slow resorbing type I collagen membrane for repair of large and complete sinus membrane perforations is described. The biocompatibility and semirigid structural integrity of this membrane, along with external tack fixation, allows for optimal membrane stabilization and maintenance. (Implant Dent 2008;17:24–31)

Survival of Implants after Indirect Maxillary Sinus Elevation Procedure: A Two Years Longitudinal Study

Survival of Implants after Indirect Maxillary Sinus Elevation Procedure: A Two Years Longitudinal Study
The aim of the study was to evaluate the survival rate of two diverse implant systems with different implant surfaces with the same geometrical design. In the present study, we achieved clinical success with both kinds of implant surfaces however Bioetched implant surface showed promising results comparable to Tiunite surface of Nobel BioCare Implants. In the future, more case-controlled studies with longer follow-up are needed to validate the results of the present findings.

Healing in Smokers Versus Nonsmokers: Survival Rates for Sinus Floor Augmentation with Simultaneous Implant Placement

Healing in Smokers Versus Nonsmokers: Survival Rates for Sinus Floor Augmentation with Simultaneous Implant Placement
Evidence suggests that smoking is detrimental to the survival of dental implants placed in grafted maxillary sinuses. Studies have shown that improving bone quantity and quality, using rough- surfaced implants, and practicing good oral hygiene may improve outcomes. In this prospective study, the long-term survival rates of implants placed simultaneously with sinus grafting in smokers and non- smokers were compared.

Site Preparation & Osseodensification in Bone Management
Today's implant arena involves not only the understanding of procedures but also the science behind wound healing. Often new technologies and instrumentation evolves that have a significant impact on what we are able to do clinically. Piezosurgical devices, periotomes, osteotomes, hydraulic sinus devices, neurosurgical drills, and the "PET" (Partial Extraction Therapies) system are just a short list of those that have made surgery more efficient and less traumatic for our patients. Osseodensification is another concept that can be added to this long list. This lecture will speak about new age bone management concepts and how these technologies may be able to assist us. Potential issues and focus on use will be touched upon as well.

Thinking Outside the Box in Sinus Augmentation- From Conventional to Minimal Invasive Approach
The lecture will focus on the concept of "thinking outside the box" in sinus augmentation, showing unconventional minimal invasive surgical manipulations which allows the clinician to reach the ultimate goal- bringing the patient the function and esthetics with his teeth even in cases with minimal crestal bone height, using autologous growth factors and minimal invasive anthral membrane balloon elevation.

Emerging Concepts in Sinus Augmentation; Atraumatic and Efficient Crestal and Lateral Access Techniques
This presentation will highlight through in depth clinical case documentation, the new and evolving role of instrumentation for access to the Sinus for Bone Augmentation. Efficiency and minimally invasive approaches which increase success and minimize complications will be highlighted. Posterior Maxillary reconstruction often involves Sinus Augmentation and Implants then inserted into the grafted site. A knowledge of useful and clinically manageable techniques that provide access but minimize large surgical flaps and sinus membrane perforations are keys to success.

Digital Dynamic & Static Solutions
Partial Extraction Therapy and crestal sinus augmentation have changed the methods of implant planning and execution. Preserving both hard and soft tissue has propelled these concepts to innovative. Until recently the use of dynamic and static guidance has been delayed. The objective of this presentation is to understand the need for digital guidance and explores avenues to accomplish a digitally based workflow and execution fr the subsequent procedures.
