In the context of the trans crestal maxillary sinus lift, a wide variety of biomaterials have been used to fill the sub-antral space over the years. The materials that have a pasty consistency and are smooth and free from lumps are the most suitable to come into contact with the Schneiderian membrane which, if torn, cannot perform its graft containment function. In this study, a micronized heterologous bone in a collagen matrix of two different percentages was used in order to fill the maxillary sinus. Before using biomaterial as filler, a spray form of hyaluronic acid was used to disinfect the surgical site before and after the surgery, along with more consistent and pasty form of gel of hyaluronic acid being used in order to facilitate the detachment of the membrane. The surgical procedures were designed and carried out using computer-planned surgery. The filling volume obtained was measured with a comparative software programme and using an ellissoid formula. This technique allows the surgery to be performed in a way that is both minimally traumatic and invasive, fully careful of the membrane and represents a viable alternative to those surgical techniques for crestal sinus lift currently in use.
