Osteotome Single-Stage Dental Implant Placement With and Without Sinus Elevation: A Clinical Report

Orest G. Komarnyckyj, DDS, Robert M. London, DDS.

PMID: 9857590

Forty-three sites in 16 patients were selected for placement of implants using osteotomes in a single-stage surgical technique. Most sites were treated to enhance bone quality. Sixteen sites in the posterior maxilla had sinus elevation performed in conjunction with implant placement. No soft tissue coverage of the implant cover screw was attempted in either the sinus-elevated or the nonelevated sites. Sinus elevation was significant relative to baseline (mean gain 3.25 mm, P < .01). The implant survival rate was 95.3%.
