The posterior region of the maxilla is characterized by thin cortical bone and trabecular bone of low-density. In addition, in many instances the height of the bone in this region is insufficient to achieve high primary stability because of the presence of the maxillary sinus. The aim of this study was to assess bone healing around immediately loaded dental implants in the posterior maxillary region with two different osteotomy techniques, conventional technique versus condensing technique. Twenty implants were inserted in 10 patients each patient received 2 implants. One implant was inserted by a conventional technique other implant was inserted by condensing technique one on each side of the maxilla. The follow-up was done at the following intervals, immediate postoperative, 6-, 12-, and 24-week. One implant from the group of condensing technique showed failure after 4 weeks. The results of this research demonstrate the success rate was 90% for condensing group and 100% for the conventional group.
