We are delighted to invite you to attend the fourth Glasgow Oral Surgery Symposium. This event will be delivered as a hybrid Conference, welcoming face to face and online delegates, with the programme offering up to 6 CPDA credits.

This symposium is themed on “Maxillary Sinus and Oral Surgery”. We have gathered 7 speakers who will present lectures to improve the understanding of the maxillary sinus for early diagnosis of diseases, preventing and managing of complications and rehabilitation of the upper jaw.

Lectures will cover:

  • Importance of understanding surgical anatomy to improve the surgical outcomes.
  • Radiological interpretation including the use of advanced imaging such as CBCT/CT/MRI
  • Early diagnosis of the diseases ranging from benign to malignant
  • Clinical and radiological markers to prevent complications
  • To manage the complications following oral surgical procedures
  • Maxillary sinus augmentation with sinus lifts and lateral ridge augmentation
  • Zygomatic implants
Diseases of both odontogenic and maxillary sinus mis-represent the clinical findings resulting in delay in the diagnosis and management. Understanding the anatomy is important to prevent complications and manage complications. The aim of the day is to improve the understanding of the maxillary sinus amongst clinicians to choose the appropriate treatment option and subsequent follow-up.

Who should attend?

Management will involve various oral health care settings including primary, secondary, and tertiary care. This event will be of interest to:
  • General Dental Practitioners
  • Dental and Maxillofacial Radiologists
  • Oral/OMF Surgeons
  • ENT surgeons especially Rhinologists

Poster Competition

We are now inviting abstracts for this year’s Oral Surgery Symposium poster competition.  The top two submissions will be selected to give a short oral presentation during the conference and all other accepted abstracts will be displayed on a digital showcase throughout the event. 

Poster submissions should be focused on the topic of:  Maxillary Sinus and Oral Surgery 

Submission deadline: Thursday 18th April 2024 

Submissions should be sent to: wilma.paterson@rcpsg.ac.uk
Full submission guidelines can be found in the ‘downloads’ section, the below instructional video should be referred to when constructing your abstract.


The aims of this symposium are to understand the relevance of maxillary sinus anatomy and behaviour when planning maxillary molar extractions and dental implants, prevent and manage complications arising from dentoalveolar surgery in the maxilla, identify malignant lesions of the sinus and appreciate the effect on the surrounding alveolus and dentition, as well as recognising the presentation of odontogenic sinusitis and appropriate management.


  • To have an understanding of maxillary sinus anatomy including behaviour of the Schneiderian membrane following maxillary molar extractions
  • To be able to prevent and manage complications in relation to the maxillary sinus when planning dentoalveolar surgery
  • To be able to identify and manage cases of odontogenic sinusitis
  • To recognise difficulties in dental rehabilitation following maxillary sinus pneumatisation and be aware of the treatment options and indications for sinus lift, zygomatic implants and short implant placement
  • To be aware of indications for the closure of oro-antral communications
  • To be able to recognise radiological and clinical signs of maxillary sinus malignancy and the effects this can have on maxillary molars in advanced cases
