Odontogenic sinusitis and “sinonasal complications of dental disease or dental treatment” (SCDDT) have been assumed to be limited to the maxillary sinus. Nevertheless, many patients also show more extensive sinonasal involvement and, occasionally, also have associated bilateral disease. We evaluated the incidence of extramaxillary extension over an 11‐year period in our clinic.

Optimal timing of endoscopic sinus surgery for odontogenic sinusitis

The purpose of this study was to analyze times to ODS resolution after primary dental treatment and ESS based on symptom, 22‐item sinonasal outcome test (SNOT‐22), and endoscopic outcomes.

Odontogenic sinusitis: a case series studying diagnosis and management

A case series of patients with odontogenic sinusitis is presented in order to clarify key disease characteristics and management techniques.

The purpose of this study was to develop international multidisciplinary consensus on diagnosing ODS.

Chronic Odontogenic Rhinosinusitis: Optimization of Surgical Treatment Indications

We first wish to commend Simuntis and colleagues on prospectively analyzing outcomes of primary dental extraction in patients with odontogenic sinusitis (ODS) due to apical periodontitis. This is an

The results of this study suggest that SCDDT is a complex entity that needs a careful diagnostic approach based on CT scans and presurgical endoscopy.

Management of upper odontogenic infections and the role of multidisciplinary treatment

Multidisciplinary agreement of an otorhinolaryngologist and dental surgeon is a crucial step in proper diagnosis and treatment of UOs, and a correct surgical approach and antibiogram-driven therapy are key elements of correct resolution of infection.

Clinical aspects of odontogenic maxillary sinusitis: a case series

The purpose of this article is to present an OMS patient series and to address dental pathology causing sinusitis can lead to failure of medical and surgical treatments.

Clinical and radiologic findings in a case series of maxillary sinusitis of dental origin

Clinical and radiologic indicators of Maxillary sinusitis of dental origin are highlighted to highlight clinical and radiological indicators of MSDO.

Odontogenic sinusitis: an ancient but under-appreciated cause of maxillary sinusitis

Odontogenic sinusitis is frequently recalcitrant to medical therapy and usually requires treatment of the dental disease, however, sinus computed tomography (CT) or Cone Beam Volumetric CT (CBVCT) are far more successful in identifying dental disease causing Sinusitis.

Maxillary sinusitis of odontogenic origin

An odontogenic source should be considered in individuals with symptoms of maxillary sinusitis and a history of dental or jaw pain; dental infection; oral, periodontal, or endodontic surgery; and in those people resistant to conventional Sinusitis therapy.

Clinical Features and Treatments of Odontogenic Sinusitis

Iatrogenic causes, which include dental implants and dental extractions, were the most common etiologic factors related to the development of odontogenic sinusitis and a preoperative consultation between a rhinologist and a dentist prior to the dental procedure should be able to reduce the incidence.

Antral Retriever and Displaced Dental Implants in the Maxillary Sinus

Antral Retriever enables the surgeon to successfully remove antral foreign bodies through a canine fossa approach under continuous endoscopic visualization and local anesthesia, with minimal discomfort for the patient.

Endoscopic assistance in the diagnosis and treatmentof odontogenic maxillary sinus disease

Endoscopy of the maxillary sinus can be applied in a variety of indications and alone or in combination with conventional surgery, it is a minimally invasive and highly diagnostic tool.

Sinonasal Complications Resulting from Dental Treatment: Outcome-Oriented Proposal of Classification and Surgical Protocol

Results seem to indicate that the rationalization of surgical treatment protocols according to the initial clinical situation may significantly improve the clinical outcome, and a new classification system and standardized treatment protocols for sinonasal complications resulting from dental procedures are proposed.

Evidence of an increase in the incidence of odontogenic sinusitis over the last decade in the UK.

The number of patients with odontogenic sinusitis undergoing surgery has steadily increased, from no cases in 2004 to 10 in 2009 (accounting for 8% of all patients requiring sinus surgery).
