    Course Description: (one-day Lecture)

    The maxillary and mandibular edentulous region presents a challenging condition for dental implant placement. Alveolar bone resorption and increased pneumatization of the sinus cavity reduce the amount of alveolar bone necessary to maintain a predictable implant-supported prosthesis. This problem can be overcome by GBR procedures maintaining the horizontal ridge dimensions or grafting the maxillary sinus floor which provides a sufficient quantity of bone for the placement of endosseal dental implants to support a prosthetic reconstruction.

    This lecture will discuss:

    1.  The advantages and utilization of Osseodensification for both Ridge Expansion and Sinus Augmentation enabling the clinician to do a minimally invasive approach
    2. “Outside the box” approach for atrophic ridge management cases with use of autologous growth factors as well as Osseodensification with up to 5 years follow up
