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

This presentation will highlight through in depth clinical case documentation, the new and evolving role of instrumentation for access to the Sinus for Bone Augmentation. Efficiency and minimally invasive approaches which increase success and minimize complications will be highlighted. Posterior Maxillary reconstruction often involves Sinus Augmentation and Implants then inserted into the grafted site. A knowledge of useful and clinically manageable techniques that provide access but minimize large surgical flaps and sinus membrane perforations are keys to success.

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.

Healing in Smokers Versus Nonsmokers: Survival Rates for Sinus Floor Augmentation with Simultaneous Implant Placement
Evidence suggests that smoking is detrimental to the survival of dental implants placed in grafted maxillary sinuses. Studies have shown that improving bone quantity and quality, using rough- surfaced implants, and practicing good oral hygiene may improve outcomes. In this prospective study, the long-term survival rates of implants placed simultaneously with sinus grafting in smokers and non- smokers were compared.

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.
