Pneumatization of the maxillary sinuses may hamper implant placement in the posterior due to inadequate available crestal height. Sinus augmentation has been advocated to develop sufficient crestal bone height to support implant placement. This article will review a simpler more predictable approach utilizing a kit to access the lateral aspect of the sinus to allow sinus grafting without damage to the sinus membrane.
