Sinus Grafting 30 Years: Myths and Realities

This clinical based presentation is based on the presenter’s 30-year experience with more than 1300 sinus grafts. It will focus on 12 commonly held myths of lateral wall and crestal sinus grafting and will provide evidence-based as well as long term clinical data to explain the realities of these myths. Included in this presentation will be the biology of the sinus membrane and graft materials, membrane anatomy and physiology, management of large and complete membrane perforation, and grafting in the presence of pathology for both lateral wall and crestal sinus grafts.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Differentiate 12 myths and realities of lateral wall and crestal sinus grafting.
  2. Understand the evidence base for predictable long-term results with lateral wall and crestal sinus grafts.
  3. Understand the management of sinus graft complications including large and complete membrane perforations, along with sinus grafting in the presence of pathology.
