The only way to ensure a good treatment outcome is to avoid pitfalls through careful evaluation and diagnosis. This
book explores the issues that may be encountered by clinicians during sinus floor elevation and how to avoid complications.
The author demonstrates the necessity of preoperative CBCT imaging for every case and discusses the
efficacy and pitfalls of both the lateral window and the osteotome techniques. The many case presentations show
diverse pathologic findings, such as the treatment of maxillary sinusitis, mucous retention cysts, and apical lesions,
as well as solutions for situations with difficulties due to the presence of the alveolar artery and septa. This book
provides effective techniques for sinus floor elevation to guide clinicians to a successful, complication-free outcome.
