The aim of this study was to evaluate the performance of piezoelectric devices during sinus elevation to determine the percentage of sinus membrane perforation and the time required to perform the antrostomy and elevation of the membrane. A total of 35 patients and 40 grafted sinuses were included. The parameters recorded were bony window length and height, bone thickness, osteotomy area, operative time, and number of perforations. Seven (17.5%) membrane perforations were observed, which were repaired with resorbable membranes. The mean length, height, and thickness of the osteotomy were 13.8 ± 2.9 mm, 6.9 ± 1.4 mm, and 1.4 ± 0.4 mm, respectively. The mean osteotomy area was 96.8 ± 32.2 mm2, and the mean operative time was 10.3 ± 2.1 minutes. This study demonstrated that a piezoelectric device could be an attractive alternative for successful sinus augmentation.
