Managing the Deficient Posterior Maxilla - Ridge Splitting and Balloon Mediated Sinus Elevation

Description:
In this extremely detailed surgical technique video, Dr. Ziv Mazor demonstrates the comprehensive management of a severely compromised and deficient posterior maxilla. Dr. Mazor utilizes piezo surgical cutting instruments, ridge expandersas well as the Minimally Invasive Antral Membrane Balloon Elevation (MIAMBE) to augment the region in conjunction with immediate implant placement.

Sinus Lift...it comes down to Crestal vs. Lateral Approach Good and fair question. I too have had great success with the lateral approach. It gives great visibility to the surgeon and allows for a larger access for lift instrumentation, membrane evaluation and bone grafting. So why a Crestal approach with either the Balloon or Dr. Lee's technique? Simply, it allows for a less invasive and more direct approach to the graft area often entering through the same access as where the future implants will be placed. Additionally, it does not as easily allow us to "over" graft the sinus with bone where it is not needed which often happens with the lateral approach inadvertently and no membrane is required to cover the window. Finally, there is much less post-op pain and edema for the patient. What are the shortcomings of the Crestal approach? It is technique sensitive. It gives less visibility to the surgeon. It requires new instrumentation and a remaining ridge width of at least 5mm. As for not grafting beyond the bottom of the fixture or "zero" bone beyond the apex as you state, I believe you are referring to the utilization of PRF as the sole graft medium. This does not occur with particulate bone grafting materials. You won't know until you try it out? good luck Dr. S

Dr. Mazor; As you raised a full thickness flap to access the ridge in this case what are the benefits of the Balloon Lift over the Lateral Window?
thanks Sam

Management of the Full Arch Edentulous Patient: Team India Approach Premium Member Content

Management of the Full Arch Edentulous Patient: Team India Approach
The number of fully edentulous patients is on the rise due to higher life expectancy. Also, higher number of young patients are edentulous due to congenital disorders or advanced periodontal disease. Various treatment options are now available to the clinician for treating edentulous patients. However a lot of confusion exists amongst clinicians while choosing the right treatment approach and the correct prosthesis design for such patients. During this lecture, Team India will present a decision tree for treatment planning fully edentulous patients. This will help clinicians to opt for the most suitable prosthetic design for their patients. Critical factors such as age of patient, bone zones, cosmetic display and degree of resorption will be discussed. The importance of a well adjusted interim restoration and the conversion from provisional restoration to the final one utilizing the novel ‘Fast tracking’ technique will be a part of this presentation.

The "Slit Lift" Minimally Invasive Crestal Sinus Lift Approach Premium Member Content

The "Slit Lift" Minimally Invasive Crestal Sinus Lift Approach
Typically, in the crestal approach sinus procedure, it is expected that the elevated Schneiderian membrane will become extended. The rate of extension can be expressed by dividing the dome-shaped elevated membrane by the total base area. The higher the extension rate, the more extended the Schneider membrane becomes, increasing the risk of perforation.

The Anatomical Foundation of Implant Surgery
Knowledge of Surgical Anatomy is a critical foundation for any clinician involved in implant dentistry. In order for dentists to perform safe and successful bone grafting, implant surgery as well as effectively manage complications, they must first be well versed in the fundamentals of Surgical Anatomy of the head region with emphasis on the Maxilla, Mandible, as well as the roof and floor of the mouth. This Dentalxp presentation, in part, describes the objectives of one component of a comprehensive hands-on surgical Anatomy course being offered live in partnership with Dentalxp. This section emphasizes the Surgical Anatomy of the Maxilla and Maxillary Sinus as an example of what is covered in one section of the course lectures.

Transcrestal Sinus Floor Elevation: Most Frequently Asked Questions Premium Member Content

Transcrestal Sinus Floor Elevation: Most Frequently Asked Questions
Over 20 years of clinical application and research on transcrestal sinus floor elevation (TSFE) procedures using a variety of implants, graft materials and instrumentation has proven its reliability, and versatility. While improving upon the original osteotome technique they have not yet eliminated the need for a more invasive lateral approach, especially at sites with very limited (1-2 mm) sub-antral bone. Extensive analysis of the existing research and long-term clinical experience will provide the answers to the most pertinent questions surrounding the transcrestal approach including but not limited to: patient selection, clinical limitations, instrumentation, graft selection/necessity and management of membrane perforations.

The Magnetic Mallet and It’s Use in Daily Practice - Clinical Perspective Premium Member Content

The Magnetic Mallet and It’s Use in Daily Practice - Clinical Perspective
This innovative machine called the Magnetic Mallet is a device based on a EU/US patent of invention in oral surgery. It uses magnetism to generate a very impressive acceleration of the osteotomes that maximizes the forces applied to the bone (making the procedure fast and efficient) and in the meantime minimizes the inertia and discomfort for the patient. Such speed doesn’t cause any bone heating therefore irrigation water is also not needed!

The Effect of Piezoelectric Use on Open Sinus Lift Perforation: A Retrospective Evaluation of 56 Consecutively Treated Cases From Private Practices

The Effect of Piezoelectric Use on Open Sinus Lift Perforation: A Retrospective Evaluation of 56 Consecutively Treated Cases From Private Practices
The lateral window approach to maxillary sinus augmentation is a well-accepted treatment option in implant dentistry. The most frequent complication reported with traditional techniques has been the perforation of the Schneiderian membrane, with erforation rates ranging from 11% to 56%. The purpose of this retrospective, consecutive case series from two private practices was to report on the rate of Schneiderian membrane perforations and arterial lacerations when a piezoelectric surgical unit was used in conjunction with hand instrumentation to perform lateral window sinus elevations.
