New brochure “Treatment Concepts: Sinus Floor Elevation” out now!

Despite sinus floor elevation being a technique invented more than 30 years ago, there remain several outstanding questions on how to optimally balance minimal invasiveness and reliable bone regeneration. The new treatment concept brochure “Sinus Floor Elevation” sheds light on decision criteria, recent scientific findings and long-term results.

As no material, implant length or treatment approach for sinus floor elevation is a perfect fit for all situations, the new treatment concept brochure offers advice on different options and decision criteria.

  • When is a crestal approach appropriate, when a lateral?
  • What material is most suitable – Geistlich biomaterial, autologous bone or a mixture of the two?
  • When can sinus floor elevation be avoided with the aid of ridge preservation?
  • When are short implants an alternative?
  • How to proceed in the event of a perforated Schneiderian membrane?

A wealth of expert knowledge – exactly like no other

The big asset of the "Treatment Concepts":  As always, international experts detail their own treatment approaches and summarize the chief key factors for success.  For example, Ass. Prof. Stephen Wallace, USA, presents his successful lateral sinus floor elevation with 100 percent Geistlich Bio-Oss® covered with a Geistlich Bio-Gide® membrane and follow-up after 13 years. Dr. Devorah Schwartz-Arad, Israel, on the other hand, shows her sinus augmentation procedure via lateral window approach using Geistlich Bio-Oss® and Geistlich Bio-Gide® and verifies the long-term stability with a 20-year follow-up.

Series of “Treatment Concepts” completed

Through the addition of this latest brochure, Geistlich has now rounded off the entire portfolio offering seven different treatment concepts brochures, one for each therapeutic area: extraction socket management, major bone augmentation, minor bone augmentation, peri-implantitis, periodontal treatment, sinus floor elevation and soft tissue regeneration.
