Sydney Australia - Sinus Grafting for Implant Reconstruction

July 13 - July 14, 2018







When you participate in this unique learning experience, you will:

  1. Understand the 7 key principles for predictable sinus bone grafting.
  2. Describe the science and art of sinus bone grafting (lateral window and crestal) via unique interactive lecture discussion, HD video clips, and hands-on workshops. 
  3. Learn from Dr. Pikos’ 29 year experience with sinus bone grafting (more than 1200 sinus grafts performed). 
  4. Experience a warm, friendly and unique environment for increasing diagnostic and surgical skill sets. 
  5. Learn not just the “how to”, but the “why” and “why not”.

Course Objectives:

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the Pikos Institute Philosophy for sinus bone grafting as they become confident with the clinical and sequential CBCT evaluation protocol. 
  2. Understand the anatomy, biology and wound healing of sinus bone grafting. 
  3. Understand the indications, guidelines and surgical protocols for sinus bone grafting: lateral and crestal approach. 
  4. Understand the use of osseodensification technology for optimizing implant site development with crestal and lateral sinus grafting. 
  5. Perform sinus bone grafting with delayed and simultaneous implant placement. 
  6. Recognize, manage and prevent intraoperative and postoperative complications associated with sinus bone grafting.
