Abstract

Aim

Minimally invasive method for retrieving displaced objects like implants from the maxillary antrum with minimal complications.

Background

Minimal invasive endoscopic surgery has been developed for various indications in the craniomaxillofacial area.

Case description

In this article, a technique for endoscopic removal of a dental implant displaced into the maxillary sinus is presented. Access to the implant was achieved transorally via the canine fossa. The endoscopic surgical approach described was reliable and minimally invasive for removing dental materials displaced into the maxillary sinus.

Conclusion

Transantral endoscopic surgery is a reliable, minimally invasive method for retrieving displaced objects from the maxillary antrum with minimal complications.
