Abstract

The posterior maxilla presents several challenges to the implantologist. Implant dentistry has become an excellent treatment modality since its inception into the modern era of dentistry. When patients present with deficient alveolar ridges, it could jeopardize the application of implant dentistry. This problem is especially magnified in the posterior maxilla where ridge resorption and sinus pneumatization are often encountered. The procedure of choice to restore this anatomic deficiency is maxillary sinus floor lift up. The purpose of this case report is to bring forward such technique which prevents perforation of sinus lining during implant placement by doing the sinus lifting with indirect approach through alveolar crest. The indirect approach for sinus lift is less invasive and less complex and therefore a better alternative for such cases.
