Goal: To Acquire Knowledge & Skill in the management of the Elevation of the Maxillary Sinus
| 1 January, 2015

For the past 20 years, maxillary sinus elevation has become an inseparable part of the implantology armamentarium. The surgical technique requires meticulousness from the initial planning, to practice and final care. The course will present protocols and equipment. We will discuss obstacles and dilemmas alongside complications and treatment, together with the various alternatives at hand.

Doctors will receive personal training with practical experience and will be able to view procedures live from the operation room. If maxillary sinus elevation is considered a complex procedure, the right preparation and adherence to protocols are sure to turn it into a safe, routine and successful atrophic maxilla reconstruction.
