The aim of this study was to evaluate implant stability placed in the maxillary sinus which was augmented with bovine bone mineral (Bio-Oss.) mixed with autogenous bone from the maxillary tuberosity. Maxillary sinus floor augmentation with the mixture of bovine bone mineral and autogenous maxillary tuberosity bone was performed in 30 maxillary sinuses, and 68 implants were placed at the time of sinus graft. After 6 months of implant placement abutments were connected and implant stability quotient (ISQ) was measured by radio frequency analysis (RFA). In addition, bone level changes was evaluated by taking periapical radiograph. During surgical procedures, no complication was observed, and all patients healed uneventfully. At 6 months the implant showed stable ISQ values. The marginal bone level changes around the fixtures was stably maintained through out the follow up period. This study confirmed that maxillary sinus floor augmentation with mixture of bovine bone mineral and maxillary tuberosity bone could be reliable for bone regeneration in subantral space.
