Dr. F., asks:
I have heard a lot of discussion about Endopore dental implants with their very coarse surface coating with a great deal of surface area for osseointegration. I wanted to know about the efficacy of these implants placed in the maxillary posterior region where you have mostly Type IV bone.
Endodpore claims that these dental implants can be placed in as less as 3mm of bone ( i.e. a 4.1 x 7 mm implant ) without doing a direct sinus lift. They recommend a simple indirect sinus lift with oseotomes. Has anyboy tried this technique with these Endopore dental implants and what were your results?
