Current considerations on bone substitutes in maxillary sinus lifting
de Carvalho,Paulo S.P
The procedure of maxillary sinus lifting using autogenous bone was considered the reference standard choice for oral rehabilitation in cases of severe atrophic maxilla. However, it is not always a viable option, due to the limitations or morbidity caused by grafting techniques. This has led to the development of bone substitutes, which have been elaborated and improved. Choosing the best biomaterial becomes difficult due to the wide variety of bone substitutes. The aim of this article is to present some of these materials that are reported in the current scientific literature for maxillary sinus lifting.
