Maxillary sinus elevation, followed by placement of a wide variety of grafting materials, has been the generally accepted surgical protocol for the development of bone in the sinus cavity. Over the years, various techniques have been proposed for maxillary sinus elevation, which differ in surgical approach, bone graft materials, and advanced technology application for hard tissue and soft tissue management. Dr. Kao and a team of experts begin by discussing anatomy, radiographic image applications and limitations, and then provide step-by-step clinical procedures for the lateral window technique, including piezosurgery, and the trans-alveolar methods, including balloon and controlled hydostatic sinus elevation. Also included are chapters on post-operative care and complication management.

"In this book, the authors blend scientific knowledge and practical experience to provide a comprehensive overview of the principles, indications, and clinical techniques of plastic-esthetic periodontal and implant microsurgery, focusing especially on minimal soft tissue trauma and maximally perfect wound closure. Microsurgery provides clinically relevant advantages over conventional macrosurgical concepts for regenerative and plastic-esthetic periodontal surgery, especially in the all-important esthetic zone. The microsurgical principles and procedures presented in the book are explained step-by-step in meticulously illustrated case examples with large, exquisite images. Each case example also includes an illustrated armamentarium of the materials and instruments necessary for the practical implementation of the microsurgical procedure. The book concludes with instructions on how to manage all major complications for each procedure."--Publisher.
One of the most important factors in ensuring successful osseointegration is the stability of the implant after its insertion. In order to achieve optimum conditions for implantation, it is often necessary to prepare the area and reconstruct the bone to ensure that it is the correct shape and size for the implant. Preprosthetic and maxillofacial surgery provides a thorough review of the current status and future direction of this important field. Part one reviews bone grafting for implantology and reconstructive preprosthetic surgery. Chapters in part two discuss reconstruction and rehabilitation whilst the final group of chapters analyse tissue engineering applications. Provides readers with the fundamentals of the biology and physiology of maxillofacial bone reconstruction Examines bone reconstruction in implantology and reconstructive preprosthetic surgery considering the fundamentals of bone grafting and alveolar reconstruction Explores construction in particular situations, beginning with applications of biomaterials in alveolar and maxillofacial bone reconstruction and moving on to describe implants in congenital missing teeth

Chapter on Diagnostic Imaging and Techniques focuses on the latest technology available to determine patient conditions, familiarizing you with recent advances and how they apply to treatment planning principles. Section on Treatment Planning discusses the rationales for implant placement, variables in implants and patient conditions, and the four degrees of jaw bone density, Dr. Misch's best-known criterion for successful implant placement. Prepares you for actual treatment by reviewing scientific fundamentals such as applied anatomy, biomechanical principles, current biomaterials, prevention and management of dental infections, and pharmacologic considerations. Surgical procedure chapters are of benefit to the implant surgeon and are critical to the restoring dentist who wants to better understand and appreciate surgical concepts. Over 1,000 full-color illustrations depict details of implants, related materials, and surgical procedures. Brand-new coverage includes: Key Implant Positions and Number, Ideal Implant Surgery, Extraction Socket and Barrie Membrane Bone Grafts, Sinus Pathology and Complications of Sinus Grafts, Immediate Loading for a Single Tooth, Partially Edentulous and Completely Edentulous Patient. Important updates include indications and contraindications for rationale of biomechanical treatment plans, layered approach to bone grafting, autograft block bone grafting, soft tissue surgery, and implant esthetics and maintenance.

This text is aimed at experts who have been interested in implant dentistry for many years and who wish to implement this clinical application with the high predictability that comes from following the correct, scientifically based guidelines.
Sinus augmentation has become a routine surgical procedure to increase the height of the edentulous atrophied posterior maxilla. Numerous techniques have been used successfully, allowing a high survival rate of implants placed after sinus elevation. This book highlights the anatomical landmarks and describes, using clinical cases, the latest ultrasonic devices used for both lateral and crestal approaches, including their possible complications. With step-by-step clinical images, this book will help the clinician to make rational decisions for maxillary sinus augmentation, and to treat any complications that occur during surgery. This is an extremely accessible and up-to-date resource that every dentist should have in their office, for clinical guidance in their treatment planning or when performing sinus augmentation.

This completely revised and greatly expanded edition offers authoritative recommendations concerning all aspects of sinus bone grafting procedures for rehabilitation of the atrophic maxilla. Written for the uninitiated as well as the experienced clinician, this comprehensive clinical monograph also guides readers through the maze of new materials and techniques that have been introduced to improve upon or even supplant this procedure. It answers questions such as whether autogenous bone is necessary and where best to harvest it; which bone substitutes are most effective in regenerating bone and how safe they are to use; what contraindications exist, and what complications might be expected; what characteristics of size/shape/surface morphology are most important in choosing an implant; and many others. The last section of the book explores the future prospects for genetic engineering and other gene-based therapies that may one day eliminate the need for bone grafting.

Nasal continuous positive airway pressure ventilation is the gold standard in the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea. Long-term compliance rates are about 60%. Therefore, several alternative treatment options are of special interest. Beside conservative therapies, various surgical concepts exist. The field of surgery for sleep disordered breathing has rapidly grown with new instrumentation and surgical techniques in the last 10 years. Surgeons in these fields have to attend scientific meetings, participate in workshops, and read the literature to stay up to date. In our sleep laboratories we conduct 30 polysomnographies each night. Each year, we perform almost 1,000 surgical procedures for sleep disordered breathing apart from numerous other conservative and apparative treatment modalities. Referring to our expe- ence and the present literature, we tried to give new information on surgical techniques in this second edition. The chapters are grouped in different anatomical fields of interest. We wanted to give general advice and specific new hints for the surgery of sleep disordered breathing so that the reader learns basic techniques followed by more advanced surgery. In addition to the illustrated surgical descriptions, the chapters contain informations about indications and contraindications of each surgical procedure and the postoperative care. Special interest has been dedicated to evidence-based medicine. So in each chapter, there is a table of references summarizing the effectiveness of the procedure and EBM grade.

"This book presents a concise approach to the diagnosis and surgical treatment of patients with dentofacial deformities. In-depth chapters detail the treatment process of patient evaluation, analysis of diagnostic records, development of a visual treatment objective, treatment planning, and surgical management. The most common surgical techniques are featured in step-by-step protocols. Although the basic science of orthognathic surgery remains unchanged, the contents of this book have been updated to reflect the most current interpretation of diagnostic data, including expanded discussions of the rotation of the maxillomandibular complex and anterior open bite dentofacial deformities as well as new sections on distraction osteogenesis and the intraoral vertical mandibular ramus osteotomy. Full-color illustrations and comprehensive case reports complement the text and demonstrate treatment outcomes."--Publisher.
