Introduction: The loss of bone volume in posterior maxillary sectors can condition implant treatments. Therefore, regulated surgical techniques that permit increasing the residual alveolar bone and allow the placement of implants is available. There are numerous donor bone areas, such as the mandibular ramus. When sufficient residual bone height is available to guarantee the stability of the implants, they can be placed in the same surgery. Patient and Method: Male of 53 years of age referred for the placement of implants in right posterior maxillary sector. He was subjected to surgery to elevate the maxillary sinus with graft from mandibular ramus and lyophilised material, with placement of implants in the same phase, and clinical monitoring for four years in prosthetic load. Conclusions: The technique of maxillary sinus elevation with mandibular ramus graft and placement of implants in a single phase deals with a safe procedure with predictable results when there exists sufficient residual bone to ensure the primary stability of the implants.
