Abstract


Theaimofthisnarrativereviewistodescribetreatmentoptionsforimplants in theposteriorregionsofthemaxilla. Thedentalliteraturewasscreenedfortreatmentoptionsenablingtheplacementofdentalimplantsinposteriorsites. Theposteriormaxilla faces twin challenges like ridge resorption and sinus pneumatization following extraction. Hence, sinuselevationprocedureswereforlongconsideredtobethegoldstandardusingvariousbonesubstitutematerialsandrenderinghighimplantsurvivalrates. However due to inherent limitations in the technique and associated morbidity, graftless solutions are now gaining popularity. This paper reviews advantages and literature on use of short, angulated, zygomatic and pterygoid implants as graftless solutions in the posterior maxilla.
