Atrophy of the alveolar processes of the jaws, as a result of edentulism, often cannot allow a prosthetic rehabilitation, also if it only consists of a total removable prosthesis - for the inadequate base support - and also if it is backed by implants, because the small residual thickness bone compromises the primary implant stability, a fundamental requirement for a correct osseointegration. In addition to atrophy itself, the presence of noble structures (maxillary sinus, inferior alveolar nerve) make an implant-prosthetic rehabilitation contraindicated. To obviate this problem, there are many techniques to increase bone. The technique of the maxillary sinus elevation allows the increasing of the residual bone up to reach the minimum thickness in order to insert an implant. With this work we want to analyze the properties of the Bone Compression Kit (MIS, Israel) that make this surgical procedure safe, simple to perform, and predictable.


KEY WORDS: Sinus lift, Implantolgy, Bone compression kit
