Objective: The aim of this study was to illustrate the successful use of trabecular metal (TM) implants placed in posterior maxilla following maxillary sinus augmentation. Methods and Materials: Twelve TM implants were placed after maxillary sinus augmentation using mineralized human bone allograft (MHBA) in 6 patients. At second stage procedure, 3 months after TM implants installation, the outcome measures evaluated were implant success and removal torque test. Result: At second stage procedure, the implant success rate was 100%. No evidence of peri-implant marginal bone loss was noted clinically and all implants successfully tolerated a 25 Ncm torque test. Conclusions: The favorable outcome of the treatment described suggests that the rehabilitation of atrophic posterior maxillary region can be achieved by the placement of TM implants in sites augmented with MHBA.
