Yes posterior maxilla has porous bone - a weak kind of bone, just ask your dentist to get a CT done and see the density of bone and according to that implants can be ordered whether plasma coated ,hydroxyapatite coated or deep threaded design there are variety of them to choose from, it all depends on careful planning before implant placement

Also, for anterior teeth, I'd recommend a narrow dental implant or a mini implant( Zimmer makes a one-piece implant).
