Aim: The present study was undertaken to evaluate the bone height following maxillary sinus augmentation using indirect technique. Material and Method: It is a randomized study comprised of 10 patients having crestal bone <7 mm in maxillary posterior region. Following the standard surgical protocol, under local anesthesia the osteotomy in the proposed edentulous site of implant placement was done indirect sinus augmentation technique (ISAT). Post-operatively various variables like bone height, pain, sinus discomfort etc. was notified. Results: Bone gain was 4.65±0.19 mm. Pain at 5th day was 1±0.2. Sinus discomfort was found in 30% of the subjects at 3rd day. Conclusion: The results of the study need to be validated with a larger sample size.
