Indirect sinus lift: Opinions?

Last Updated February 16, 2018

I recently placed a 4.5×11.5mm implant in the 16 region using an indirect closed technique. Initial bone height was about 5 mm. I used a Crestal Approach Sinus (CAS) Surgical Kit (Hiossen) and did not place a bone graft. I did not detect any perforation of the sinus membrane. I achieved greater than 30Ncm of primary stability. I submerged the implant for healing. Please evaluate my placement of this implant. Do you think I could have done anything different to achieve a better result or is this result just fine? This is my first encounter with an indirect sinus lift. How long should I wait for loading? What are your opinions/recommendations?
