Educational Objectives

The overall objective of this article is to provide the reader with information on the osteotome-assisted sinus augmentation procedure.

On completing this article, the reader will be able to do the following:

1. List some of the procedures available for sinus augmentation

2. Review the steps required for an osteotome-assisted sinus augmentation procedure

3. Describe the medications that are required post-surgery following an osteotome-assisted sinus augmentation procedure

4. Review the procedure required for a bone-added osteotome sinus floor elevation and its limitations

5. Compare and contrast the hybrid technique with the osteotome-assisted sinus augmentation procedure


There are a number of techniques available for performing sinus augmentation surgery, which has been reported to be a highly predictable procedure. The osteotome-assisted sinus augmentation procedure is a technique that enables simultaneous placement of implants in the atrophic maxilla. Carefully following specific steps as described in this article results in clinical success. Using the OASA technique, the size of the incision and reflection of the periosteal flap are minimized and the lateral window is reduced, thereby decreasing the removal of bone from the lateral sinus wall and the potential for postoperative complications, such as swelling and pain.
