am going to be doing a Summers lift to install implants that will extend into the maxillary sinus. What I plan on doing is fracturing the sinus floor with an osteotome and pushing the segments up and then placing a bone graft. I was wondering if I could used calcium sulfate instead of bone graft materials. Is this an FDA approved use for calcium sulfate? Is this a procedure that will have predictable success? What do you recommend?
