Placing an implant in the posterior maxilla has always challenged clinicians due to the pneumatization of the maxillary sinus. To solve this issue many sinus elevation procedures were introduced that might lead to patient morbidity and postoperative complications.  While performing these procedures, there is a need to introduce bone graft materials. A minimally invasive sinus elevation procedure will be discussed that eliminates the need for any additional bone graft and decreases treatment time as well as the complications.

Learning Objectives:  At the completion of this presentation, participants should be able to:

  1. Review the sinus elevation procedures presented
  2. Understand the clinical tips and tricks of the minimally invasive sinus elevation without added bone                
  3. Recognize the clinical significance and outcome of this minimally invasive technique                                                          
  4. Appreciate a long-term follow up of cases using this minimally invasive technique
