Purpose: This study describes the use of an innovative dynamic implant valve approach (DIVA) for dental implant placement and sinus augmentation procedures. Materials and Methods: The DIVA implant system was tested in vitro for leakage and mechanical fatigue. A closed sinus elevation procedure with a gel-type bone substitute was performed using the DIVA implant in a swine model (n = 6). Implants were placed and evaluated radiographically and histologically. Results: Elevation of the maxillary sinus membrane and augmentation were performed in a simple, minimally invasive fashion. Histologic analyses demonstrated complete sealing of the DIVA implant and excellent osseointegration. Conclusion: The DIVA can be used as a simplified viable option for dental implantation and augmentation procedures. Hermetic sealing of this implant system, which features an inner screw, renders it safe.
