Dentistry professionals are required to analyze, in many cases, images associated to important structures where a great knowledge of the dentomaxillofacial anatomy is vital for an accurate diagnostic.The maxillary sinus is an anatomical structure - very important by its function - that occupies the upper 2/3s of the maxillary bone. Since it is very close to the posterior dental structures, it must be well known by dentists in the several specialties.Its anatomy is one of the most varied, and many factors related to the maxillary bone morphology like edentulousness and the sinus conformation can result on different shapes, even in the same person.The Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) of the maxillary sinus provides a three-dimensional evaluation and its relationship with the boundary structures. It is a precise reproduction of the dentomaxillofacial region, providing valuable support to the professional who will work on or next to this anatomical structure.
