  The purpose of this work is to present an alternative technique to normal sinus lift in the upper jaw with minimal invasive approach in order to reduce biological costs using the osseodensification mode. Infact following this technique is possible at the same time place the implant with high primary stability and increase the vertical bone height with and without bone graft. Compared to the traditional technique like lateral sinus lift or crestal approach with manual osteotomes, this procedure is less invasive and more predictable and precise.
