Sinus Graft Workshop - Predictable Augmentation for Implants: Lecture, Hands-on Workshop and Live Surgery Demonstration is organized by UCLA School of Dentistry and will be held during Mar 09 - 10, 2018 at UCLA School of Dentistry, Los Angeles, California, United States of America.
The target audience for this medical event is Dentists. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 14 CDE Credits.
Sinus floor augmentation has become a routine procedure that enhances the outcome of dental implants placed in the posterior maxilla when an insufficient bone volume is found. The question remains, what is the best choice of donor material to use for sinus grafting? This course will not only provide hands-on laboratory session to familiarize the participant with the surgical techniques but also reveal the science behind the selection of the appropriate donor material. The surgical technique will be demonstrated from flap design to accessing the sinus floor to proper soft tissue closure and finally to managing complications associated with sinus floor graft. Hands-on workshop will be performed on custom designed sinus models.
A live sinus augmentation surgery will be performed by Dr. Peter Moy. This unique opportunity will give participants the surgeon’s view of the procedure performed in real-time. Participants will watch the live surgery and can interact with Dr. Moy while he performs the procedure.
Learning Objectives are:
• Surgical approaches: lateral window and crestal approach
• Anatomy and physiology of the maxillary sinus
• Diagnosis and treatment planning
• 3D imaging for maxillary sinus augmentation
• Selection of donor material
• Soft tissue management
• Complications and management
• Workshop performed on plastic models and goat heads
