Removal of a migrated dental implant from the maxillary sinus after 7 years: a case report.

Summary of "Removal of a migrated dental implant from the maxillary sinus after 7 years: a case report."


BACKGROUND:
The accidental displacement of dental implants into the maxillary sinus is an infrequent but possible complication in dental clinical practice. The main cause of implant displacement is the inadequate bone height in the posterior maxilla. This event usually occurs during surgery, and it is more rarely reported in the post-operative period, especially with long-term follow-ups. CASE
REPORT:
Here, a case of an implant migrated inside the maxillary sinus at the time of abutment connection and removed 7 years later is described.
DISCUSSION:
Postoperative recovery was uneventful. To the author's best knowledge, this case represents the first report concerning migration of an oral implant into the maxillary sinus removed after 7 years.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The air space located in the body of the MAXILLARY BONE near each cheek. Each maxillary sinus communicates with the middle passage (meatus) of the NASAL CAVITY on the same side.

Tumors or cancer of the MAXILLARY SINUS. They represent the majority of paranasal neoplasms.

Air-filled spaces located within the bones around the NASAL CAVITY. They are extensions of the nasal cavity and lined by the ciliated NASAL MUCOSA. Each sinus is named for the cranial bone in which it is located, such as the ETHMOID SINUS; the FRONTAL SINUS; the MAXILLARY SINUS; and the SPHENOID SINUS.

Endosseous dental implantation where implants are fitted with an abutment or where an implant with a transmucosal coronal portion is used immediately (within 1 week) after the initial extraction. Conventionally, the implantation is performed in two stages with more than two months in between the stages.

Inflammation of the NASAL MUCOSA in the MAXILLARY SINUS. In many cases, it is caused by an infection of the bacteria HAEMOPHILUS INFLUENZAE; STREPTOCOCCUS PNEUMONIAE; or STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUS.
