Generally speaking this surgery has a very high success rate. Over an 8 year study of 1,557 implants in 1,100 patients using the Hydraulic Sinus Condensing technique, only 8 implants failed, resulting in a 99.99% success rate.
The majority of patients whose implants failed were smokers, or had an abnormally small amount of cortical bone, and in every one of those cases the second attempt at the surgery was successful.
In addition, this procedure allows implant placement with less than 1mm of crestal bone. The sinus is able to be lifted with the presence of a sinus septum or sinus slope, unlike other lift techniques.
