Operating in the Maxilla is often times very different than surgerizing the Mandibular arch. Due to decreased bone density/quantity, topography, and overall accessibility, literature and industry data overwhelmingly state that most implant complications occur more frequently in the Maxilla. Therefore, additional considerations and adjunct procedures may be necessary to secure successful outcomes. A dedicated course to train exclusively within the Maxilla is now available.
