Abstract : Dental implants are considered the first option for restoring edentulous arches. However, many factors can affect implant placement in the maxillary posterior region, such as alveolar bone resorption, expansion of the maxillary sinus and low bone density. Various techniques have been introduced to address these challenges, including the use of short implants, pterygoid implants, zygomatic implants and vertical grafting by elevating the floor of the maxillary sinus. In particular, maxillary sinus lifting is considered a reliable procedure for providing vertical dimension to facilitate successful implant placement in the posterior maxilla.
