Sinus lift is one of the intricate methods of increasing bone height in the posterior maxilla. Graft materials are used to provide the height and hence increase the implant support and success rate. Successful osseointegration of dental implants required a stable and sufficient amount of bone. There are different types of bone grafting materials including autogenous bone grafts, allografts and xeno grafts. Other newly used materials such as platelet rich plasma is also found to have optimal results. The current study was aimed to assess the implications of dental implants after immediate sinus augmentation and type of graft materials which are suitable to support the sinus lift procedures. A data search was performed based on available electronic data bases (Cochrane data base, Medline/PubMed) for articles published from1990-2013.Sinus lift is combined with various graft materials to increase the bone height. The long term survival of implant depends on surgical techniques, bone volume, graft materials and Implant surface features.

Keywords: Endosseous implant, Bone grafting materials, Hydroxyapatite (HA).
