Abstract

Minimal invasive endoscopic surgery has been developed for various indications in the cranio-maxillofacial area. 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 implant was captured and removed using a urological retrieval basket through the endoscopic working channel port. The endoscopic surgical approach described was reliable and minimally invasive for removing dental materials displaced into the maxillary sinus.
