The article analyzes the complications which may arise in the maxillary sinus during dental restorations, by illustrating several cases in which teeth have become lodged in the antrum during extraction attempts. The antrum, as stated, may be opened during extractions. It is stated that, as restorative material may be forced into the maxillary sinus during the filling of a root canal of a posterior tooth, chronic apical inflammation of a devitalized tooth may spread occasionally to the mucosa lining the sinus, where it may cause accessory sinus inflammation. An example is presented in which a dentist perforated the sinus during the extraction of a molar but neglected to close the injury, and thus permitted impression material to pass into the sinus when an impression was being made.
