Indirect Sinus Lifts for Implants
INNOVATIVE TECHNIQUE FOR INDIRECT SINUS LIFTING. Attempting to place implants in patients with a pneumatized maxillary sinus can create a challenging situation for many dental implant practitioners. Evaluation and management of the deficient posterior maxillary region is handled via CBCT diagnostics and the use of the CAS-kit Approach Sinus Kit from Hiossen. Flap reflection, drilling sequence, hydraulic lifting of the Schneiderian Membrane, utilization of PRF and Allograft bone, and finally immediate implant placement is highlighted in a conservative crestal approach, without the need for opening the traditional lateral window. Attendees will understand how utilizing this technique can safely achieve anywhere from 6-8mm of vertical height in what is one of the most common, yet challenging regions to work in for implant dentistry.
