Contemporary Treatment of the Atrophic Posterior Maxilla


Maxillary Sinus Surgery and Alternatives In Treatment with Prof. Inv. Borsay

Sinus elevation surgery has become an essential part of implant surgery, periodontics, and oral surgery. Over the last 25 years procedures have evolved so much that sinus grafting surgery is considered the most successful augmentation procedure performed today and the survival rate of implants placed in these grafts is as high or higher than that of implants placed in the non-grafted posterior maxilla. The sinus elevation procedure is still evolving today due to the development of new surgical techniques and new biomimetic technologies.

This course will present sinus elevation surgery and possible alternatives to sinus elevation therapy from pre-surgical planning to prosthetic restoration.
Multiple video presentations will give participants complete exposure to the surgical sinus elevation experience. This course will present both evidence-based and new state-of-the-art techniques.
