Patient cases

A 55-year-old female patient with missing maxillary premolars, class IV recession on the adjacent tooth, pneumatized sinus. She was treated with simultaneous sinus elevation, implant placement, guided bone regeneration, and soft tissue grafting.

Sinus grafting is recognized as an effective treatment modality with high implant survival rates having been reported. The lateral approach technique entails opening a lateral window in the bone and elevating the sinus membrane from the inferior aspect of the maxillary sinus so...

Sinus graft surgery can be performed as either a one-stage or a two-stage approach.

 

The decisive factor in choosing a simultaneous approach (one-stage surgery) over a delayed approach (two-stage surgery) typically is based on two factors: 1.) the amount of remaining alveola

Sinus graft surgery can be performed as either a one-stage or a two-stage approach.

 

With the single-stage surgery, the bone grafting and implant placement are performed in one surgery with the graft placed first, followed by implant placement. In the case of a two-stage surge

Rehabilitation with implants in the posterior maxilla is challenging due to the rapid reduction of the available bone which is the result of physiological resorption of the alveolar process together with increased pneumatisation of the maxillary sinus. Augmentation of the sinus...

Treatment guidelines

Less than 4-6 mm of vertical residual bone height in the posterior segment of the maxilla is an indication for a sinus augmentation procedure [Esposito]. The external access to the maxillary sinus is carried out at a lateral buccal alveolar...

In the edentulous upper jaw implant insertion can be limited due to the adjacent anatomical structures (nasal floor, maxillary sinus). Less than 5-6 mm in height and 6 mm in width requires augmentation before implant placement....
