Densah Sinus Lift utilizing Osseodensification
As promised, I am posting a video detailing the Densah Sinus Lift procedure.
Patient is medically stable. He is missing first and second upper left molars. Bone quality was poor in the second molar position (extraction site with remaining root tip) and ridge width was only 5 mm in area of the first molar. Sinus Pneumatization was evident with sinus floor at 4-6 mm depth.
Four key points to follow:
1- Densah bur to be used sequentially to expand a pilot osteotomy.
2- Densah Burs must not travel more than 3 mm into the sinus beyond the pre-measured sinus floor depth at all times.
3- Densah burs will allow 3 mm lift with autogenous bone graft.
4- If more than 3 mm lift is need, Allograft to be added. In this case, Densah Burs may advance only 0-2 mm beyond the measured sinus floor to gently propel the graft and help create additional lift.
I would like to disclose that I am the inventor of the Densah Bur technology and have a financial interest in Versah, LLC the manufacturer of the Densah Bur.
