Sinus Augmentation and EthOss – Treatment Protocols, Challenges and Solutions – Dr Andrew Fish

Sinus augmentation can be an effective treatment option for the placement of dental implants in the maxilla, where the low level of the sinus cavity and lack of host bone presents complications.

During this presentation, Dr Andrew Fish (UK) will be discussing his experience with EthOss bone grafting material in sinus augmentation. The webinar will include numerous clinical cases from the speaker using both horizontal and vertical sinus augmentation techniques.

The discussion will focus on:
• Recommended treatment protocols
• When to place the implant – simultaneous with grafting or delayed?
• Using EthOss in the sinus – mixing, placement and results
• Challenges and solutions in sinus grafts
• Post-operative management, medication and patient guidance
