We report on 5 cases, 4 to demonstrate the anterior sinus graft technique for angled implant placement and 1 comparison zygomatic case, all for immediate function implant restoration despite severe maxillary atrophy. The sinus graft was low volume, with less than 5 mL of bone morphogenetic protein-2/absorbable collagen sponge allograft in a 50% mixture placed against the lateral nasal wall, often in conjunction with implant placement. The importance of the technique is to simplify treatment of severe maxillary atrophy for immediate function to avoid the need for zygomatic implant placement in the vast majority of severely atrophic maxillas. © 2014 American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.
