5mm small vertical incision was made on the buccal side of the #26.

A small hole was made into the sinus above the implant apex with a round bur.


A 20 gauge needle was connected to a 10cc syringe, and the needle was inserted into the sinus cavity for aspiration.

Approximately 8cc of pus was extracted.


Saline was inserted into the sinus, and the process was repeated 3-4 times, until clean water was extracted.

1g of cephalosporin was diluted with 1.5cc of saline.


The antibiotic was injected into the sinus directly. This procedure was repeated every day for 3-4 days until the sinus became clean.
