SPEAKER: Bach Le, DDS, MD, FICD, FACD

SYNOPSIS:
Dental implants are a predictable treatment option when there is sufficient quantity and quality of bone. However, when patients present with deficient alveolar ridges, it can hamper the placement of dental implants. This problem is especially magnified in the posterior maxilla where ridge resorption and sinus pneumatization, compounded with a poor quality of bone, are often encountered. The procedure of choice to restore this anatomic deficiency is maxillary sinus floor elevation (sinus lift).

This one-day lecture and hands-on cadaver workshop will focus on the most up-to-date techniques in sinus augmentation to improve long-term clinical success with dental implants. The course is designed for the clinician that has prior implant experience and would like to broaden knowledge, scope of practice and improve surgical skill..
