The instalation of dental implants in the partially or totally edentulous posterior maxilla may be an endeavoring procedure due to anatomical limitations, especially imposed by the sinus pneumatization. It is not uncommon the need for augmentation and the golden standard procedure is the sinus lift.

The aim of this paper is to report a case in which such this very procedure was performed based on the osseodensification protocol. The surgical procedure was described in this paper as well as a discussion.
