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.
