In the maxillary incisor region, a sinus floor augmentation to enlarge the vertical bone supply may be indicated for a vertically reduced local bone height of less than 5 to 7 mm before procedures to rehabilitate masticatory function with an implant-bearing tooth replacement. For a single-sided deposit osteoplasty, the quantity of autogenous bone from the chin region is usually sufficient. The operative procedure of a single-sided lateral sinus floor augmentation is demonstrated with particulate spongious bone and alternatively with an autogenous block graft.
The video also shows the operative method for a crestal sinus floor augmentation with the aid of the endoscopically controlled condensation technique. The advantages and disadvantages of the individual procedures are highlighted. In addition, the technique for harvesting chin bone transplants in different case examples is shown.
