The maxillary sinus can be a host of a wide range of different types of foreign bodies as a result of its size and the anatomical relation to multiple different skull compartments. Displacement of maxillary molars to the maxillary sinus can occur, although it is rarely reported and the incidence of such condition is still unknown. Most of reported cases in the literature of a tooth in maxillary sinus regardless of its etiology have symptomatic presentation. Different approaches can be utilized to manage such condition; however, surgical management by functional endoscopic sinus surgery is preferred given its advantages of better sinus aeration and less postoperative complication.
