The maxillary sinus will be discussed in detail based on scientific insights and case studies with an emphasis on 3D imaging.

This lecture is part of the IMH Seminars Guest speaker: Prof. Michael Bornstein (Department of Oral Health and Medicine, University Center for Dental Medicine, Switzerland).

The maxillary sinus is located in the immediate vicinity of upper (pre)molars. It is therefore not surprising that sinus pathology is often linked to dental pathology. Peri-apical abscesses and granuloma can expand in the maxillary sinus and give rise to odontogenic sinusitis. On the other hand, non-odontogenic sinusitis can cause pressure at the apical regions of upper (pre)molars and thus induce tooth pain. It’s obvious that both processes must be well known by dentists for a correct differential diagnosis.

In this lecture the maxillary sinus will be discussed in detail (anatomy, pathology and therapy) based on scientific insights and case studies with an emphasis on 3D imaging. There will also be attention for sine augmentation.
