Ectopic Third Molar: A Hidden Cause For Maxillary Sinusitis —A Rare Case Report

AbstractOdontogenic sinusitis (OS) accounts for about 10 –20% of all the sinusitis occurring in maxillary sinus. OS may result due to periapical pathology, severe periodontitis, peri-implantitis, or oroantral communication due to displacement of tooth root into the sinus. Very rarely OS can be due to an impacted tooth in the maxillary sinus for which ve ry few case reports are found in literature. The author presents a case report of 24 years female suffering from unilateral chronic sinusitis since 1 year caused due to impacted third molar tooth in left maxillary sinus associated with odontogenic keratocyst that was managed both medically and sur gically. One year follow-up revealed that she was free from previous symptoms.

Abstract PURPOSE: To evaluate the utility and efficacy of bioabsorbable hydroxyapatite and collagen complex (HA/Col) for secondary bone grafting in unilateral alveolar clefts. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between 2015 and 2016, 21 patients with unilateral cleft lips and alveolar clefts were enrolled. In group I, a cancellous iliac bone graft was placed at the alveolar cleft (6 males, 5 females). In group II, a bioabsorbable HA/Col was placed at the alveolar cleft (4 males, 7 females). RESULTS: The groups did not differ in age, cleft volume, or surgical duration. There was a significant difference in intraoperat...

Authors: Shin JY, Che DN, Cho BO, Kang HJ, Kim J, Jang SI Abstract Commiphora myrrha (Myrrh) is widely recognized for its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, which are utilized for the treatment of oral ulcers, gingivitis, sinusitis, glomerulonephritis, brucellosis and a variety of skin disorders. The current study aimed to assess whether myrrh modulates itch-associated interleukin (IL)-31 cytokine production and histamine release in stimulated human mast cells (HMC-1). To realize this, molecular biology techniques including real-time quantitiative PCR, western blotting and ELISA were employed. The resu...

We report a case of bilateral ectopic eruption of maxillary third molars associated dentigerous cyst. A 27 years old female patient reported to us with chief complaint of purulent discharge form nose and recurrent facial swelling for last 2 years. Complete removal of cystic lining and extraction of ectopic maxillary third molars along with mandibular third molars was carried out.ResultsPost-operative healing was uneventful.DiscussionBilateral ectopic eruptions of maxillary third molars in Antrum of Highmore (Maxillary sinus) are rarely seen and scantly documented in the literature. Dental ectopia may occur in antrum and pr...
