Is Schneiderian Membrane perforated or not?

Last Updated May 24, 2018

I have placed two 5x8mm implants in the 16 and 17 region. My initial Crown-Height Space was 5.7mm as measured on the CBCT. I have not placed any graft material and I have used the osteotome technique. Valsalva maneuver was also done but I still feel that the membrane may be perforated in the region of 17. What do you think? what is the chance of success of an implant in this case? potential complications?
