Summary

Introduction. The present article reports the late removal of a wisdom tooth displaced into the maxillary sinus associated with the curettage of the adjacent infection tissue, under general anesthesia.

Case description. A male patient, 42 years-old, was forwarded to remove a right wisdom tooth which was displaced into the right maxillary sinus for 10 months. The patient reported that the tooth was tried to be removed using odontosection in two moments without any success. Since then, the patient has been having (applicants) episodes of sinusitis. It had been planned to remove the tooth and the cleaning of the right maxillary sinus. The surgical procedure was done through the Caldwell-Luc access, followed by the removal of the dental fragments which were into the maxillary sinus and curettage of the cavity in order to remove the granulation tissue, associated to copious irrigation.

Conclusion. The surgical removal of the tooth displaced into the maxillary sinus associated with the sinus curettage was successfully achieved, solving the patient complaints.

Key words: maxillary sinus, third molar, case study, oral surgery, intraoperative complication.
