Wisdom teeth are often impacted or in an ectopic position. One rather special localisation is the maxillary sinus. Usually these teeth are associated with dentigerous cysts, which can occupy the maxillary sinus partially or totally and can be the cause of various symptoms. We can find it at routine radiographic examination or the patient could have typical, sinus-related symptoms. This signs can be swelling, pain of the cheek, headeache and nasolacrimal obstruction. We report four cases (one of them detailed) with review of the literature where the upper wisdom tooth is situated in the maxillary sinus.
