Various attempts have been implemented using different materials and
techniques to augment the maxillary sinus floor for prospect dental implant
This contemplate was conducted to assess the osteogenic capability of the
maxillary sinus in a two-step sinus membrane elevation using titanium mesh
to keep the formed space to place dental implants in atrophic ridges.
MATERIALS AND METHODS:
Titanium micromesh was customized and positioned into the sinus on one side
to preserve the elevated membrane in position. On the other side xenograft
was applied. Instant and 6-months postoperative cone beam computed
tomography (CBCT) was done to assess the gained bone height and density.
Bone core biopsies were obtained during implant placement for histological
and histomorphometric evaluation.
The average bone height values increased in both groups. Meanwhile the
average bone density value was higher at the graft group than the titanium
mesh group. Histological and histomorphometric evaluation presented the
average bone volume of the newly formed bone in the graft group which is
superior to that of the titanium mesh group.
The use of the titanium micromesh as a space-maintaining device after
Schneiderian membrane elevation is a trustworthy technique to elevate the
floor of the sinus without grafting.
