Appropriate for both students and practicing dentists, the clinical guide provides detailed instructions for performing sinus augmentation
procedures in restoring the posterior edentulous maxilla with dental implants, and identifies anatomical landmarks to evaluate before surgery.
The maxillary morphology is important during planning of dental procedures such as dental implantation and sinus augmentation
(Malec et al.
for dental implants: the use of alloplastic materials.
It identifies the blood vessels on the side walls of the maxillary sinus, which is necessary in cases of sinus augmentation
To allow proper implant placement in posterior maxillary areas, the sinus augmentation
procedure was proposed by Tatum (9) 1977, with a description of the procedure first being published by Boyne and James (10) in 1980.
6) Over the years various techniques have been proposed for maxillary sinus augmentation
which differ in the surgical protocol (the method and anatomic site for carrying out the antrostomy), in the autogenous bone harvesting site, in the type of graft material used, in the timing of the implant surgery in relation to maxillary sinus floor elevation (simultaneous i.
Alveolar ridge and sinus augmentation

1 Maxillary sinus is prone to odontogenic infections due to expansion of long- term chronic apical periodontitis radicular cyst odontogenic jaw cyst intrusion of apparatus or root canal filling materials invasion of surgical dental extraction-induced residual tooth root dental implant-induced maxillary sinus augmentation
and even Le-fort" maxillary osteotomy.
It is planned for extraction sockets, grafting for implant placement, ridge augmentation, and sinus augmentation
Covered topics include oral/maxillofacial imaging, histomorphometry, examiner calibration, good clinical practice, ridge augmentation, soft/hard tissue grafting, sinus augmentation
and periodontal regeneration protocols.
It is thought that this feature is desirable for stability and maintenance of volume in sinus augmentation

is a safe procedure with high predictability for rehabilitation of severely atrophic posterior maxillae.
