Grafting of the Maxillary Sinus With Intraorally Harvested Autogenous Bone Prior to Implant Placement

Robert M. Wood, DDS/David L. Moore, DDS, MD

PMID: 3074053

Patients with severely atrophic posterior maxillae and increased pneumatization of the maxillary sinus may lack adequate bone height for endosteal implant placement. Grafting of the maxillary sinus via a sinus lift procedure augments the atrophic ridge and allows for such implants. Grafting with bone harvested from intraoral sites has distinct advantages over other previously described techniques. (INT J ORAL MAXILLOFAC IMPLANTS 1988;3:209-214.)

Key words: atrophic maxillae, autogenous graft, endosteal implants, sinus lift
