Nowadays we are talking more and more about interdisciplinarity in medicine. A patient is no longer treated by a single specialist. For an accurate diagnostic and treatment planning, we need to collaborate with our colleagues from other medical specialities: Radiology, Oral Pathology, Anesthesiology, Cardiology, Nutrition and so on.
The main problem of rejected implants in the sinus region was linked to undiagnosed sinus infections.A good diagnostic will help lead to a successful treatment.If the sinus is infected, the procedure of sinus elevation and implant insertion is almost certain to fail.
Grafting and insertion of implants in an infected sinus may cause severe problems which you can avoid by having an interdisciplinary approach and sending these kind of patients to an ENT specialist to clean their infected sinuses before any grafting procedure or implant insertion.
Endoscopic assessment of the maxilary sinus is mandatory in patiens with changes of the CT scan.This allows a proper examination of the sinus mucosa and can predict the outcomes of the sinus lift procedures.It is mandatory to cure the inflamation or infection.
