Figure 2: (a) Clinical view on the dentition of the upper jaw before the intervention. The teeth are well in function from 11 to 27. All other upper teeth were in infraocclusion. The molars were hardly erupted and are therefore not visible here. (b) An intraoral clinical picture taken during the first treatment phase. During the extraction not only the teeth came out, but also the minimal rests of cortical bone surrounding them resulting in a large communication between the oral cavity and the maxillary sinus. The bone was partly missing up to the median raphe of the maxilla of the right side
