Abstract
Maxillary sinus and its close proximity to the oral cavity make it a common clinical concern for medical and dental practitioners. For this reason, dentists should be familiar with the anatomy, physiology and pathology of this complex region. Teeth which are protruding into the maxillary sinus can have various dental implications like Implant placement, oroantral fistulae, root displacement into the sinus cavity, and Endo-antral syndrome. The dental practitioner must remain aware of the possibility of odontogenic infections spreading from the teeth into the neighbouring maxillary sinus, producing symptoms of both dental and sinus disease. The purpose of this article is to review the maxillary sinus and its pathologic conditions through different imaging modalities used in dental practice.
