Learn the latest techniques for successful sinus elevation and bone grafting, implant placement and complications/periimplantitis in this all encompassing 1-day clinical course developed by Dr. Jovanovic. Class size is limited to 24 participants and is 1/2 day lecture and 1/2 day hands-on workshop on fresh upper porcine models. This course is part of the 4-day Advanced Implant Therapy training and may be taken separately. Participants receive 1 clinical video, Sinus Elevation & Grafting by Drs. Istvan Urban and Sascha A. Jovanovic.

A critical viewing of biological and clinical aspects of sinus elevation techniques including the key elements for implant success will be presented.

Flap Management, sinus elevation techniques, and suturing methods
Decision making and clinical protocol in osteotome versus Lateral window approach
Bone Grafting layering protocol with autograft, Xenograft and barrier membrane
New technology grafting protocol using growth factors and bone fillers
Choice of implant system for sinus cases and when to stage the sinus bone graft
Diagnosis of problems and management of sinus complications

Participants will practice on fresh goat maxilla models, with the latest implant designs, microsurgical sinus hand instruments, osteotome instruments, bovine filler materials and resorbable membranes and rhBMP-2/INFUSE bone graft.
