Sinus augmentation has become a routine surgical procedure to increase the height of the edentulous atrophied posterior maxilla. Numerous techniques have been developed and perfected, allowing for a high survival rate of implants placed after sinus elevation. This book highlights pertinent anatomical landmarks and uses comprehensive clinical presentations to demonstrate the use of the latest ultrasonic devices for both lateral and crestal approaches as well as to discuss the management of possible complications. The goal of this book is to help clinicians understand each surgival step of the illustrated maxillary sinus augmentation procedures and the evidence-based rationale behind the decision making. The authors have clearly succeeded in their goal and created an up-to-date and accessible resource that every dentist performing sinus augmentation should have on hand for clinical guidance.
