Sinus grafting procedures are an established therapy to gain bone height in the posterior maxilla. Depending on the remaining bone height, they can be performed with simultaneous or two-stage implant placement using osteotomes, a trans-alveolar or lateral-window approach.
Numerous studies have shown predictable results using autogenous bone but also bone substitute materials. However, within the last decade, the role of autogenous bone as the “golden standard” for sinus grafting procedures has been increasingly discussed, since same results can be obtained using bone substitute materials without additional donor-site morbidity and additional stress for the patient.
In the webinar, different approaches of sinus grafting procedures, the selection of different bone substitute materials, clinical and histological results and a sufficient complication management will be discussed.
