Dec 14, 2019 | CE 8.00 | Los Angeles, California
Focus on the Maxillary Sinus: Lecture & Cadaver Hands-On Workshop is organized by Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of University of Southern California (USC) and will be held on Dec 14, 2019 at Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC, Los Angeles, California, United States of America. The target audience for this medical event is the clinician that has prior implant experience and would like to broaden knowledge, scope of practice and improve surgical skill. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 8 Continuing Education Credits. SYNOPSIS: Dental implants are a predictable treatment option when there is sufficient quantity and quality of bone. However, when patients present with deficient alveolar ridges, it can hamper the placement of dental implants. This problem is especially magnified in the posterior maxilla where ridge resorption and sinus pneumatization, compounded with a poor quality of bone, are often encountered. The procedure of choice to restore this anatomic deficiency is maxillary sinus floor elevation (sinus lift). This one-day lecture and hands-on cadaver workshop will focus on the most up-to-date techniques in sinus aug-mentation to improve long-term clinical success with dental implants. UPON COMPLETION YOU WILL BE ABLE TO: • Discuss the rationale for sinus augmentation. • Understand maxillary sinus anatomy and function. • Schneiderian membrane thickness, risk of tearing. • Management of sinus septums. • Understand and manage maxillary sinus pathology. • Mucous retention cysts, maxillary sinusitis, etc. • Effects of implant exposure to sinus cavity and risk of sinus complications. • Know pre-operative evaluation. • Rule out sinus pathology. • CT scan evaluation. • Understand sinus graft biology and healing. • Know the advantages and limitations of various augmentation approaches. • Perform various maxillary sinus augmentation approaches. • Lateral window approach. • Crestal approach. • Osteotomes. • Ridge expansion technique in conjunction with sinus grafts. • Balloons. • Piezoelectric instrumentation. • Flap design for optimal esthetic and predictability. • Know when to perform sinus graft versus using short implants. • Understand the rationale for choosing various graft materials. • Harvest ramus and chin grafts. • Recognize and treat graft complications. • Membrane perforations, bleeding, oral-antral fistula formation, maxillary sinusitis and infection, graft failures, etc. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
