|Sinus lifting via crestal approach by Summer’s technique (internal sinus lift) is a common and a non-invasive procedure in implantology practice compared to sinus lift via external approach. However, patient discomfort, shocking feeling, membrane tearing, difficulty in graft packing, and the unsafe use of hammer and osteotomes are disadvantages and drawbacks of this technique. Piezo surgery opened a new era in implantology practice as a safe and easy to use technology by means of respecting and protecting the soft tissues. Hydrodynamic piezo intralift technique is a minimally invasive and reliable technique for internal sinus lifting with highest success rate, especially in less experienced hands, it achieves more safety, easy graft packing less membrane tearing complications, less trauma, less edema, less post-operative pain and more patient acceptance. The presentation will show the principle and surgical steps of the piezo hydrodynamic sinus lifting technique as well as a clinical study done on 74 patients, with end results.|
