Abstract

Sinus floor augmentation is essential for successful dental implantation in patients with alveolar bone height less than 10 mm. However, maxillary sinusitis has been reported to occur in 8-20% of patients after sinus floor augmentation. We present a case of maxillary sinusitis due to sequestrum of bone cement fragment into the maxillary sinus ostium after sinus floor augmentation.
