Abstract

Autogenous bone has been the material of choice at our institution since 1983. The criteria for a successful graft in the sinus have been fulfilled based on functional stability in patients followed-up over 10 years in selected cases. Of 173 implants placed into autogenous bone grafted sinuses, 20 have been lost in four patients. Long-term follow-up is recommended for all graft materials used to support posterior maxillary restorations.
