Abstract

Background: The reconstruction of edentulous patients with adequate bone volume and density by using dental implants has become a viable treatment option with high predictability. However, initial stabilization is difficult to achieve in the posterior maxillary regions where cortical bone is thin or absent due to severly resorbed alveolar ridges. Maxillary sinus lift procedures applied with various grafting materials enable clinicians to place implant-supported prostheses even in cases with increased pneumatization of the maxillary sinus.
