Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients requiring two-stage unilateral maxillary sinus floor augmentation (sinus lift) in case of insufficient bone height in the area of the posterior maxilla, prior to insertion of dental implants
  • Residual bone height at the site of planned implantation > 1 mm and < 5 mm
  • Male and female outpatients, 18 to 75 years old
  • Female patients must be infertile (either sterilized or postmenopausal). If a patient's menopausal status at screening is uncertain, levels of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) should be determined. Patients with an FSH level > 25 IU/l and absence of menstrual bleeding > 6 months will satisfy the definition of postmenopausal status.
  • Patient has given informed consent.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Women of childbearing potential, lactating women
  • Participation in another clinical study within 30 days prior to study start
  • Previous participation in this study
  • Last dental extraction (maxilla, posterior to canine) within the last 3 months
  • Failed sinus lift surgery and previous eradictive maxillary sinus surgery
  • Simultaneously bilateral sinus lift
  • Legal incompetence or restricted legal competence
  • Alcoholism, drug dependency, smoking
  • Acute or chronic infection at the application site, e.g., sinusitis
  • Known infection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B virus (HBV), or hepatitis C virus (HCV)
  • Severe allergic rhinitis which requires permanent medication (Rosenlicht 1999)
  • Known intolerance of or hypersensitivity to beta-TCP or rhGDF﷓-5
  • Presence of local or systemic malignant disease or history of local or systemic malignant disease in the past 5 years
  • Patients requiring chemo- or radiotherapy
  • Previous or current radiotherapy of the head
  • Chronic liver disorder
  • Impaired renal function
  • Uncontrolled, insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus
  • Clinically relevant symptoms of thyroid dysfunction
  • Severe hypertension (RRdiast > 110 mmHg);
  • Clinically relevant cardiovascular disease
  • Systemic bone disease or illness having influence on bone metabolism,
  • Clinically relevant blood coagulation disorder,
  • Leukopenia < 3.500 leukocytes/µL
  • Previous or current treatment with systemic corticosteroids
  • Previous or current therapy with drugs having any influence on bone metabolism
  • Previous or current treatment with immunosuppressant medication
