Introduction: Dental implants are widely used for replacing teeth loss. Sinus augmentation is one of the procedures used to obtain increased vertical height for dental implant placement when the proportional bone height is not achieved. The most common complication during this procedure is Scheneiderian membrane perforation, which can be managed using collagen membranes. Case report: A case of Schneiderian membrane perforation that occurred during a sinus augmentation procedure and was subsequently managed using a collagen membrane. A 51-year-old female patient with missing teeth numbers 14, 15, 16, 17 and with an alveolar height less than 3 cm. The Schneiderian membrane perforation was managed using tissue additives and a collagen membrane followed by bone graft particulate and dental implant placement. Conclusion: The treatment of Schneiderian membrane perforation can be effectively managed using collagen membrane.
