It is a pleasure to invite you to submit manuscripts to the forthcoming Special Issue “Clinical and Histological Healing after Maxillary Sinus Floor Elevation” that will be published in Dentistry Journal. A huge number of articles and reviews show the high success rate of implants installed in an elevated sinus floor. However, some aspects still need to be clarified.
Several topics might be suitable for the present Special Issue, including the clinical and histological healing of the various biomaterials used as filler and of the sinus mucosa. The histological healing of implants installed in sinuses elevated with or without biomaterials might also be of great interest. Variables applied in the surgical protocols should be clinically and histologically investigated, such as the influence on the healing of the placement of a collagen membrane to cover the antrostomy or placed subjacent the sinus mucosa. The histological modifications and possible perforations of the sinus mucosa in contact with implants and biomaterials particles should also be explored, as should the influence of the sinus mucosa on bone formation. Clinical studies evaluating cone-beam computed tomography images taken before sinus floor augmentation and after different periods of healing might provide interesting data. Among the possible evaluations, very interesting are those related to the corticalization of the new sinus floor and the closure of the antrostomy. Moreover, the correlations between the radiographic outcomes and the anatomical conditions of the sinus before the surgery might provide useful information for the clinicians.
