The maxillary sinus enlarges in the long run after tooth loss in the posterior maxilla and makes implant placement more complex when combined with crestal resorption. Maxillary sinus augmentation becomes necessary to provide adequate bone height volume to place implant fixtures. In this case report, a 42-year-old man reported to the department with grossly decayed tooth with 13,14, 23,24 and history of extraction with 15,16,25,26. Preoperative radiographs revealed inadequate bone height with 15,16 and 25,26. Extraction was done with 13,14,23,24 and sinus lift was planned for 15,16 and 25,26 using hydraulic lift system followed by implant placement with 13,15,16 and 23,25 and 26. Maxillary sinus was well augmented with the bone graft material which lead to increase in vertical height of maxillary bone. This aided in placement of implants. The hydraulic lift system: Crestal approach sinus (CAS KIT) provides an alternative, lower-risk method for sinus lift when compared to conventional technique.
