In the posterior maxilla, residual bone height is limited by the presence of the sinus and often plays a key factor in the placement of dental implants. A sinus lift is the ideal approach (when evaluating an atrophic maxillary ridge with deficiency in vertical height) to build additional bone in order to place a solid and stable implant. The Crestal Approach Sinus Kit (CAS-Kit) is the superlative tool for performing this procedure because it combines the advantage of high volume bone placement of the lateral window approach with the simplicity of the transcrestal approach. The CAS-Kit makes this treatment option more accessible than ever.

The transcrestal approach to sinus lift surgery is a less invasive technique than traditional approaches of elevating the sinus membrane for dental implant placement in the maxillary region. The specially designed CAS-Stopper System provides precise depth control and helps the clinician to avoid perforation of the sinus membrane. A Hydraulic Lift System further promotes patient safety by using the gentle delivery of saline to elevate the Schneiderian membrane. Patients benefit greatly from the transcrestal approach performed with CAS-Kit, as this less traumatic method promotes a shorter healing time than lateral window approaches.

This interactive course provides an opportunity for participants to expand their knowledge base and clinical skills to allow for management of simple maxillary sinus cases. Through the use of lecture and participation activities, doctors will learn how to perform the transcrestal augmentation technique utilizing the CAS-Kit to build bone in the posterior maxilla. Emphasis will be placed on simple and practical approaches to place dental implants simultaneously with sinus lift on flat or inclined sinus floor.

Learning Objectives:

At completion of this presentation, participants should be able to:

1. Attain proficiency in the anatomy of the sinus
2. Perform conventional transcrestal sinus lift technique using osteotome verses contemporary approach to lift sinus technique using various tools
3. Show familiarity with the indications and contraindications of transcrestal approach sinus lift
4. Understand indications and contraindications using various bone graft materials
5. Describe the advantages and limitations of using a transcrestal approach
6. Manage complications
7. Display elevated surgical skills through practice on a sinus model
