A Comprehensive Clinical Review of Maxillary Sinus Floor Elevation in Patients with Well-Defined Faintly Radiopaque Lesions in the Antrum

  • General Medicine

Well-defined, faintly radiopaque lesions are occasionally observed in the antrum of the maxillary sinus in asymptomatic patients during maxillary sinus floor elevation. These lesions are treated as antral pseudocysts (AP) based on the clinical diagnosis in some cases, and maxillary sinus floor elevation is performed without enucleating these lesions. However, further surgery is required after implant placement if the lesion is a mucocele, odontogenic cyst, or tumour. This comprehensive clinical review aimed to identify an appropriate approach for maxillary sinus floor elevation in patients with well-defined, faintly radiopaque lesions in the antrum based on our clinical experience.
