Bone resorption patterns in the posterior maxilla m ay preclude the placement of implant lengths ≥ 10mm. In order to attain adequate height for implan t placement below the sinus floor, additional bone grafting may be necessary. After sinus bone au gmentation, a 6 to 9 month healing period is often required prior to implant placement, which pr olongs the healing time and increases costs to the patient. Regarding general and local contraindi cations for dental implants, most posterior edentulous ridges have minimal bone height. The sho rt implant avoids complication of the procedure and time of the treatment and the classif ication of short implant is usually in 5-10 mm length. The objective is accurate and detail analys is of the jaw-bone would assist the dental practitioners to make a decision regarding the pati ent selection, the implant surface type and also the surgical technique used in the short implants w ithout bone grafting. The research question is to reveal the factors affecting bone regeneration in d ental implantology could be applied to use short implants. S6t3Bh9Gwo
