Dental Implants and Sinus Lift: Guidelines?

Last Updated November 01, 2016

I have treatment planned a patient for an Mini Dental Implant (MDI) in #3 area [maxillary right first molar]. I am planning on penetrating the maxillary sinus only 2-3mm. I have seen some reports where that is acceptable and others that state any entry into the sinus is below the standard of care unless there is a sinus lift procedure. Should I plan for a sinus lift in this case? In general, what are the thoughts or guidelines on penetrating the maxillary sinus with conventional or mini dental implants?
