Sinus Elevation Using a Staged Osteotome Technique for Site Development Prior to Implant Placement in Sites with Less Than 5 mm of Native Bone: A Case Report

Taeheon Kang, DDS, MS


PMID: 18351205
DOI: 10.11607/prd.00.0783

Since the osteotome technique with simultaneous implant placement becomes less predictable when there is less than 5 mm of preexisting alveolar bone height beneath the sinus, a staged approach has been recommended for this situation. The purpose of the present article is to describe the osteotome technique as a site development method where the edentulous posterior maxilla radiographically showed less than 5 mm of bone between the alveolar crest and the sinus floor.
