Odontogenic maxillary sinusitis may originate from a variety of causes such as apical periodontitis, oroantral fistulas and infection due to foreign bodies. The increasing use of dental implants and sinus lift procedures performed by dentist in recent years may explain the higher incidence of sinusitis caused by iatrogenic origin. In light of this, the collaboration between rhinologists and dentists became essential for the diagnosis, management and treatment of dental-related sinus diseases thus enabling dental rehabilitation of complex cases suffering from sinus diseases.
This special issue aims to deal with diagnosis, evaluation and management of odontogenic maxillary sinusitis in general and with sinus lift and dental implant placement, in particular. Research articles, reviews, short communications and concept papers are welcomed. Research areas may include (but not limited to) the following:
Odontogenic maxillary sinusitis – etiology, diagnosis, complications, evaluation, radiology, non-operative management, surgical management.
Sinus lift and dental implant placement – indications, contra-indications, techniques, special considerations, evaluation, complications, management of pre-operative issues, management of complications.
The role of the collaboration between rhinologists and dentists in the diagnosis and management, as well as in treating complications, should be particularly emphasized.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.
