A total of 29 implants (Tapered Internal, BioHorizons, Birming- ham, AL, USA) were placed in 21 consecutively treated patients with the simplified minimally invasive transalveolar sinus eleva- tion technique.

Calculations were performed with statistical software, R Of the 29 implants placed, five were placed in 2nd premolar sites, 19 in 1st molar sites and five in 2nd molar sites. 28 of the 29 implants were placed simultaneously with the transalveolar sinus elevation with good to optimal primary implant stability in sites with residual bone height ranging from 2.8 mm to 6.5 mm. The remaining implant was placed after 6 months of healing due to the poor bone quality at the site. The residual bone height during the sinus augmentation surgery was 2.5 mm and the bone quality was deemed as poor (class IV) during implant site preparation, thus implant placement was aborted and the osteotomy was filled with CPS putty after elevation of the sinus to 13.5 mm. After 6 months of healing the site was re-entered and the implant was successfully placed with adequate primary stability. The implant was func- tionally loaded after 4 months of healing and remained successful throughout the follow-up period. Due to delayed implant place- ment this fixture was excluded from the analysis. All implants placed in this case series were left to heal for 4e5 months after implant placement and were then loaded with cement-retained prostheses. All of the simultaneously placed implants (28/28) were clinically stable and had no signs of peri-implant disease Fig. 4.
