The "Slit Lift" Minimally Invasive Crestal Sinus Lift Approach

Description:
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. In order to minimize the extension rate, it is essential to have a wide base area. To that end, it is more effective, not only to detach the Schneiderian membrane from the maxillary sinus floor using pressure, but also to simultaneously use an instrument to ensure detachment. In addition, rather than working through a small hole, it is easier to widen the base area by creating a longer slit. By doing so, a surgical procedure called the “slit lift” was developed. By means of the “slit lift” procedure, the success rate of surgeries increased significantly. The commentary of this technique will be presented in a detailed format through diagrams and a surgical video.

Dr. Yuanding Huang Yes,I do. This technique doesn't need the special instrument .I recommend someφ3.0mm osteotome.

Yuanding Huang - (11/4/2014 10:35 AM)

Dr. Mizuguchi, I appriaciate your technique. But I don't have the specific pusher which has a stander to mantain the puser. Do you think the minor size osteotome can also work?

mizuguchi toshiyuki - (9/3/2014 1:06 AM)

Dr.Fells Koerniadi,I achieved the primary stability by two point. First, the slit width is about 3mm and the implant is 4mm in diameter. Second,I use a large size cap for the primary stability.

Felix Koerniadi - (8/31/2014 11:33 PM)

Great technique Dr Mizuguchi..but I wondering about the primary stability. How do you achived that, since the exsisting bone only 1mm and the sinus full of graft material

mizuguchi toshiyuki - (8/30/2014 4:07 AM)

Dr. Salama,Thank you for giving me this opportunity ! I really appreciate your kindness !

mizuguchi toshiyuki - (8/30/2014 3:58 AM)

Maharajah Muthusamy, I don't use membrane to cover the graft ,I suture very carefully .Thank you for your question !

NAGARAJAN MUTHUSAMY - (8/28/2014 5:01 AM)

Nice technique.Do you use membrane to cover the graft or not.

Maurice Salama - (8/27/2014 4:40 AM)

Toshiyuki Mizuguchi, Very clever technique. Thanks for all the detail and animations. Dr. Salama

Sinus Lift & Immediate Implant Placement: "The Easy Protocol"
Sinus lift is still a common procedure in 2017. Many alternative techniques to sinus lift have been published to avoid invading this anatomical space, such as tilted implants with angled prosthetic abutments, extra short implants, distal pontic cantilever, zygomatic or tuberosity implant placements. However, many situations like highly pneumatized sinus for single missing tooth, extreme atrophic areas at posterior sites, etc. will necessary have to be solved performing sinus lift techniques to regenerate the missing alveolar bone and this alternative options cannot be taken.

Surgical Management of Posterior Maxilla
Replacement of missing teeth with dental Implants in the posterior maxilla presents unique challenges due to maxillary sinus, less quality of bone, and increased occlusal load. The surgical objectives to meet functional and aesthetic goals include enhancement of both quantity and quality of bone as well as ideal placement of dental implants for restorations that mimic nature. In this presentation, Dr. H. Ryan Kazemi discusses current surgical techniques in implant site development in the posterior maxilla including extraction site grafting, sinus lift, bi-directional bone graft, and osseodensification for bone management.

Site Preparation & Osseodensification in Bone Management Premium Member Content

Site Preparation & Osseodensification in Bone Management
Today's implant arena involves not only the understanding of procedures but also the science behind wound healing. Often new technologies and instrumentation evolves that have a significant impact on what we are able to do clinically. Piezosurgical devices, periotomes, osteotomes, hydraulic sinus devices, neurosurgical drills, and the "PET" (Partial Extraction Therapies) system are just a short list of those that have made surgery more efficient and less traumatic for our patients. Osseodensification is another concept that can be added to this long list. This lecture will speak about new age bone management concepts and how these technologies may be able to assist us. Potential issues and focus on use will be touched upon as well.

The Anatomical Foundation of Implant Surgery Premium Member Content

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.

Controlling Systematic Perioperative Anaerobic Contamination During Sinus-Lift Procedures by Using Metronidazole: An Innovative Approach
Analysis of tomodensitometric controls following sinus grafts clearly demonstrates a quite systematic lack of homogeneity. Sinus contamination by anaerobic bacteria seems almost unavoidable during bone graft surgery, and this problem may jeopardize the healing process.The aim of this study was to characterize in a systematic way the nonhomogeneities observed at 1,2,or 3 months post surgery within allogenous sinus grafts,and to assess the possible influence of a 0.5% sterile solution of metronidazole in corporated in the sinus bonegraft.

Sinus Floor Augmentation With Simultaneous Implant Placement Using Choukroun’s Platelet-Rich Fibrin as the Sole Grafting Material: A Radiologic and Histologic Study at 6 Months
Sinus augmentation with simultaneous implant placement without bone graft material is a hotly debated technique. This technique could be improved and secured by the use of an autologous leukocyte-and platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) (Choukroun’s technique) concentrate. The objectives of this study were to assess the relevance of PRF clots and membranes as the sole filling material during a lateral sinus lift with immediate implantation using radiologic and histologic analyses in a case series.
