Why is it important?

Diagnosing odontogenic sinusitis is not easy. It's almost as easy to miss it, since you didn't think about teeth, implants, and grafting, as to overdiagnose it when a small mucosal thickening appears in the maxillary sinus. Nevertheless, it's still impossible to shuttle any sinusitis patient back and forth from the ENT clinic to the dentistry department, nor it is cost-efficient still, so a good guide with shared ideas from leading experts worldwide might help both patients and clinicians alike

Perspectives

Putting together multiple authors across 3 continents is no easy feat, but we put together a scientifically unbeatable team and reviewed all the significant literature in an unprecedented attempt to put some order into this extremely diverse field.
