It is not in vain that one of our star products is the Sinus Lifter, as it is the most demanded one. Thus, we need to conclude that the Sinus Lift Surgery represents one of the biggest threats in the eyes of trainees and teachers. Such a surgery certainly involves some different elements that may hinder success. But why though? Well, we could probably argue that sinus lifting is about accuracy and detail because some dangers are implied. At the end, perhaps all depends on the surgeon expertise.

The strength of the egg lies in the membrane: it is a real one or, at least, a natural one, so the trainee may have an organic experience

It is therefore not only a matter of “product demand”, but also the fact that there is an important Sinus Lift hands-on training tradition out there. One of the greatest milestones in the history of this kind of hands-on is the use of eggs, which is a very creative solution, with no doubt. The strength of the egg lies in the membrane: it is a real one or, at least, a natural one, so the trainee may have an organic experience. It should be pointed out that this egg inner membrane is more resistant than the human one (the schneiderian membrane) and less skretchable. So, from this point of view, the trainee experience does not seem to be as accurate as it should be, not to mention the evident lack of human anatomy.

The use of pig’s heads is a very common practice around the world. Its first advantage: it is quite similar to the real human experience, regarding densities and textures. However, it may become an unpleasant experience for the trainee. Specially if no cold light is available, which may result in a strong smell of cooked meat. What if that single trainee is a vegan? Just wondering about that. Also, the anatomical structure has nothing to do with the human one.

We proudly present our U-024A Sinus Lift model par excellence, popularly known as “The Sinuslifter”

The third traditional Sinus Lift hands-on is now the more problematic. Scientifically speaking, using real human cadaver heads has many advantages: 100% realistic anatomical structure and same with densities and textures. However, there are some serious issues with this practice.

Let’s Imagine a trainees group including people from different cultural backgrounds. Some have some specific religious beliefs and some others have no religious beliefs at all. In that case, proposing such a controversial activity can lead us to a cultural shock problem

First, it is a very expensive service, which may cost over 1.500 U.S. Dollars. Second, many trainees have expressed to us that such a kind of hands-on would hurt their susceptibilities. It is fair to say that most of them did not have any problem with that at all, though. Third, some countries have restrictive laws that prevent or hind this resource. And finally, some religions restrict the use of cadaver heads, so many people cannot perform it. Let’s Imagine a trainees group including people from different cultural backgrounds. Some have some specific religious beliefs and some others have no religious beliefs at all. In that case, proposing such a controversial activity can lead us to a cultural shock problem.

Our Sinus Lift models are odour-free, animal friendly, law-abiding and respectful to all religious or non-religious beliefs

How does BoneModels try to solve all these problems? Our Sinus Lifter models have a 100% human anatomical structure. Density and texture are not that accurate as both pig and human heads, but still realistic (and always improving by the way). Our synthetic schneiderian membrane is just something you need to experience, due to its realism. Also, every susceptibility problem, religious, cultural or ideological are avoided. Our Sinus Lift models are odour-free, animal friendly, law-abiding and respectful to all religious or non-religious beliefs.
