Background: The application of Photobiomodulation (PBM), Piezoelectric Surgery (PES) and Concentrated Growth Factors (CGF) in dental implant sinus lift procedure has gained popularity. Aim: To detail a two cases report on the use of PMB, PES, and CGF as a means of enhanced angiogenesis in tissue regeneration in dental implant lateral wall sinus lift procedure. Materials and Methods: This paper presents two cases report on the multi-disciplined approach using PBM, PES, and CGF as a method of enriched angiogenesis in tissue regeneration in dental implant sinus lift technique. In both patients, the sinus lateral windows were created using PES and the sinus membrane was raised to make a new partition. Surface modified dental implants (average 8 mm long) were inserted concurrently, packed with autologous fibrin-rich CGF, and then lastly induced PBM using Multiwave Locked System (MLS) laser. Radiographic and clinical evaluation was implemented to validate the efficacy of this multi-disciplined approach. Results and discussion: Postoperative revival was ordinary with no noteworthy postoperative complications. Wound closure/angiogenesis occurred shortly after day one. New bone formation in all augmented maxillary sinuses was detected alongside the implants on plain radiographs and on cone-beam computed tomograms. The patients were very happy with the overall treatment (>80%) and the success rate of implant was 100% after a usual 10 months loading period. PBM, PES, and CGF enhance angiogenesis/wound healing by speeding up wound approximation/healing, lessening the followings: postoperative pain, swelling, bleeding, speech impairment, analgesic use, and trismus. Conclusion: Using PBM, PES, and CGF as a method to enrich angiogenesis/wound healing in sinus lift rendered initial phase of satisfaction, simplicity, effectiveness, minimal complication, enhanced angiogenesis/wound healing with no cross infection and allergic reaction.
