Abstract

Maxillary sinus floor augmentation procedure, aka sinus floor lift surgery, stand out within the universe of bone reconstruction given that the maxillary sinus is a closed cavity with favorable nutrition, which enables the use of biomaterials alone. Therefore, this study aimed to report and discuss the technical and biological peculiarities of Lumina-Porous® biomaterial alone in the maxillary sinus by describing a sinus lift case which presented with little remaining bone. After the graft incorporation period two implants were installed in the grafted area to provide proper patient rehabilitation. Keywords
