Tunnel Grafting & Crestal Sinus Elevation
Implants Northwest LIVE Learning Center
May 19-21, 2022
Tunnel Grafting and Crestal Sinus Elevation are evidence-based minimally invasive techniques to augment the maxilla for implant reconstruction. We will present traditional and minimally invasive approaches used to manage the spectrum of anatomic defects encountered in daily practice. Using live surgery, video library, and hands-on applications, participants will gain understanding and proficiency with crestal sinus elevation techniques including; osteotomes, reamer drills and Piezo/hydraulics as well as advanced crestal techniques including immediate implants & contiguous sinus floor elevation (CSFE). Tunneling techniques, instrumentation, specialized graft materials and the role of dynamic navigational surgery will also be discussed.
