An Evaluation of Integration Success and Maintenance of Short Implants in Maxillas Needing Sinus Augmentation (Romeo)
This prospective randomized study will evaluate the integration success while supporting a prosthesis for short implants placed into maxillary sites having minimal bone height that would otherwise need sinus augmentation. The resources utilized during treatment will be assessed.
Study (null) hypothesis: the overall benefit of using short length implants to avoid sinus augmentation procedures will offset differences in the cumulative implant survival rates observed between treatment groups.
