sinus and bone grafting course
Dental team helps the patient

Now in its 11th year, it’s another opportunity for those experienced in implant dentistry to take part in the renowned Intensive 3-Day Sinus and Bone Grafting Course with hands-on cadaver surgery.

As patient demand for dental implants continues to rise, more and more clinicians are becoming involved with placing and restoring implants in practice. As cases evolve from Straightforward to Advanced and ultimately to Complex cases, there is a greater need than ever for implant surgeons to gain a significant understanding around bone and soft tissue reconstructive surgery.

Conceived and led by Dr Koray Feran BDS MSc FDSRCS, Implant and Restorative Dental Surgeon, and Professor Cemal Ucer BDS, MSc, PhD, Oral Surgeon and supported by course tutors and Consultant ENT Surgeons Mr Abbad Toma and Miss Sarah Little, the Intensive 3-Day Sinus and Bone Grafting Course is a comprehensive theoretical and practical introduction to advanced sinus and bone augmentation surgery for implant surgeons. The course, being held in London in July and Manchester in November, consists of lectures and hands-on surgical training in sinus and other bone and soft tissue grafting and suturing techniques and includes live surgeries on fresh, frozen cadavers, making it a benchmark course across Europe.

Course learning objectives

This special opportunity to work on cadavers helps delegates to develop hands-on knowledge of the surgical anatomy of the head and neck relevant to sinus surgery and explore implant-related anatomy, vital structures, nerves, blood vessels and tissue spaces. It includes a crestal and lateral approach to sinus and bone grafting surgery, an in-depth look into block grafting, particulate grafting, the use of biomaterials including botiss, the use of pin and screw fixation and bone-ring augmentation.

As well as helping delegates develop an understanding of the diagnosis and management of sinus disease, the course also teaches delegates how to achieve predictable results whilst learning how to prevent, manage and resolve complications involved with sinus and bone augmentation surgery.

CT scanning

CT scanning and discussion of the imaging is also covered in depth. With most implant patients requiring some form of imaging it is essential implant surgeons can read CT scans accurately for themselves. The course guides delegates on how to review a scan, what to look for in terms of anatomy, normal anatomy variants and pathology and how to make an independent assessment of them. It covers interpretation of sinuses on CT scans and why certain appearances should be referred to a more experienced dental surgeon or an ENT specialist.

“Our courses have been attended by a great mix of dentists, ranging from oral and maxillofacial surgeons to periodontists, oral surgeons and general practitioners who bring a wealth of knowledge and experience, which adds a strong multi-disciplinary emphasis to teaching and learning on the course.”
