DR. SAMUEL LEE, Diplomate of American Board of Oral Implantology/Implant Dentistry; B.S. in Microbiology and Molecular Genetics from UCLA; Winner of 1st Place Table Clinic Presentation Award at the 2008 American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID), the 2007 American Orthodontic Society (AOS) and the 2007 International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI); inventor and patent-holder of “Crestal Window Sinus Grafting Technique”

Dental implant surgery is a very predictable treatment. However, it is very common to encounter severely resorbed ridges, which makes dental implant treatment difficult. In this presentation, Dr. Lee will present many innovative options to overcome pneumatized sinus, thin ridges and loss of vertical bone heights. This includes a new sinus classification developed by Dr. Lee, which simplifies the treatment of pneumatized sinus, as well as case studies involving multidisciplinary specialties.

Learning Objectives:

  • Diagnosis and treatment planning for implant treatment
  • Simplified GBR technique
  • Introduction to new autogenous bone harvesting technique
  • Introduction to easier mandibular ridge splitting technique
  • Biological modifiers
  • Introduction to non-traumatic nerve lateralization technique
  •  Introduction to simplified and predictable sinus bone grafting techniques
