In order for a patient to receive a properly placed implant with a functional and esthetically successful restoration, the clinician must be aware of the anatomical limitations of the maxillo-mandibular complex.  

The goal of this presentation is to provide the clinician with...

Grafting options in the edentulous maxilla include autografts, allografts and heterografts. Complications for sinus grafting include membrane perforations, sinusitis and graft resorption. Onlay/ inter-positional bone grafts and GBR have resorption rates ranging from 10%-50%, graft...
