This is due to mainly two reasons – pneumatization of the maxillary sinus and atrophy of the alveolar bone. The challenge is intensified when the native bone is around 2–3 mm. This requires vertical bone augmentation in the form of direct sinus lift/lateral wall sinus lift procedure. The most common complication associated with this procedure is the sin...
