The aim of this paper is to introduce an alternative technique for the treatment of oroantral communication (OAC). Closure of OAC, reconstruction of the posterior maxilla by sinus-lifting procedure with a particulate xenograft, and implant insertion were performed in the same operation. A lateral antral approach was used in the sinus elevations. The sinus membranes were elevated gently around the perforation area, and then a barrier membrane was used to close the perforation. Care was taken not to extend the perforation. Next, the maxillary sinus was filled with a particulate xenograft, and an implant was inserted simultaneously. Forty-seven and 40 months of clinical and radiographic follows-up revealed healthy and functional implants in the teeth area.
