Consultant Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon at the Dept. of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Copenhagen University Hospital
Simon Storgård Jensen graduated as DDS from the School of Dentistry, University of Copenhagen, Denmark in 1996, and received his certification as specialist in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery 2004 from the Copenhagen University Hospital. In 2001-2002 he attained a 1-year ITI scholarship at the Dept. of Oral Surgery and Stomatology, School of Dental Medicine, University of Bern, Switzerland and has since then stayed as part-time research fellow at the same department. In 2005 he was appointed consultant oral and maxillofacial surgeon at the Dept. of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Copenhagen University Hospital with the responsibility of the resident training program. Additional scientific merits include serving as vice president in the Danish Association for Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery 2003-2009, education delegate of the Danish ITI Section since it was founded in 2005, and membership of ITI education core group since 2010. Main research focus areas include: Experimental evaluation and clinical performance of bone grafting materials, bone augmentation procedures, bone growth factors and surgical endodontics. The results have been presented in international lectures, books, and several publications in peer reviewed journals.
Sinus surgery : Graft materials for predictable outcomes
Different graft materials for sinus floor elevation procedures have been studied extensively and a large series of grafting protocols may be considered well documented. The grafting possibilities ranges from merely elevating the Schneiderian membrane leaving the space created beneath to be filled with coagulum to augmenting the sinus cavity with autogenous bone blocks. The presentation will focus on the predictability of the different grafting protocols based on the available clinical evidence. Healing times for different clinical scenarios will be suggested based on the biologic behaviour of autografts and bone substitute materials.
