There are a variety of prosthetic methods for restoring edentulous patients. Among them, the dental implant is a stable and easily applicable option. When the remaining bone is insufficient for supporting the dental implant, alveolar bone augmentation can stably retain implant, and its prognosis will be favorable. The maxillary sinus elevation with bone graft procedure is relatively easy and has a good prognosis. In these cases, remaining maxillary teeth were extracted, bone grafts with maxillary sinus elevations were performed at the bilateral maxillary molar region at a onemonth interval, and ten implants were placed seven months later. Two weeks after the sinus elevation surgery, the sutures were removed. Postoperative healing was normal without any inflammatory reaction, and the implant-supported fixed prosthesis was delivered to the patient. The patient was satisfied with the results from the esthetic and functional aspects. Implant surgery to rehabilitate the edentulous area are a useful and attractive procedure. It is helpful to increase the implant stability by sinus grafting bone.
