Sinus grafting is the probably one of the most common and predictable grafting procedures in implant dentistry. This course has been designed to allow delegates to learn first-hand how to correctly assess patients prior to sinus grafting and learn step-by-step surgical protocols for both lateral and crestal approaches.
Delegates will also learn which graft materials work best in which scenarios and how to safely harvest autogenous bone to improve treatment outcomes, followed by the opportunity to gain hands-on experience treating cadavers. The course faculty comprises two highly experienced surgeons who routinely carry out sinus grafts in practice.

Learning AimThis course has been designed to allow delegates to learn first-hand how to correctly assess patients prior to sinus grafting and learn step-by-step surgical protocols for both lateral and crestal approaches.
Upon completion of the course, delegates should be able to understand:
• How to use CBCT imaging to evaluate sinus anatomy to ensure predictable sinus grafting
• The anatomy, biology, and wound healing of sinus grafting
• The indications, guidelines, and step-by-step surgical protocols for sinus grafting: lateral and crestal approaches using both piezo and surgical handpieces
• How to perform sinus grafting with delayed and simultaneous implant placement
• The differences between autografts, allografts and xenografts relating to sinus grafting and when and how to use them
• How to diagnose and manage thickened sinus membranes, polyps and mucous retention cysts
• How to recognise, manage and prevent complications associated with sinus grafting, both during the procedure and postoperatively
