Maxillary molar implants: indirect sinus lift ?

Last Updated December 26, 2017

This case involves a 56 year old male patient missing molars in his maxillary left quadrant. There are two options here. As can be seen on the OPG and 3D CBCT report, I can place a 4.2x8mm implant in 26 site and a 5×6.3mm implant in 27 site. The implants would be 1.5mm apart and this would leave a space of about 1mm from the maxillary sinus. Alternatively, I can do an indirect sinus lift with bone grafting and place 11mm or longer implants. What would you recommend? Are there other treatment options? Thank you.
