ABSTRACT The aim of this study was to establish the mean distances between the maxillary sinus floor and the roots of the lateral maxillary teeth in dentate subjects, respectively the mean height of the available bone for oral implant placement in the corresponding area, in edentulous ones.
We determined the maxillary sinus floor position in relation to morphoclinical alveolodental benchmarks on 50 dry skulls, dentate 30 and edentulous 20, and correlations were performed by use of 40 CT-scans of the targeted area. In addition, 20 human adult cadavers were bilaterally dissected in order to bring topographical evidence at that level.
The data we obtained lead us to define three dentosinusal relations: tangent (close) relation 60.8%; distanced relation 25.6%; penetrating relation: 13.6%; three subantral classes in edentulous patients, emphasizing the direct relation of the age of the edentulism and the degree of bone resorption. We discuss the results we obtained from the viewpoint of their application in the field of oral implantology.
The maxillary sinus floor represents the danger zone for the oral implantology.

    ABSTRACT: These cortical and trabecular bones maintain general bone structure. Bone mineral density (BMD) changes according to increasing age, sex, and teeth loss. From previous studies, the evaluation of BMD changes depended on conventional radiographic analysis. This study investigated the trabecular bone ratio (TBR) in maxillary bone samples based on data obtained by micro-computed tomography and estimated variations in BMD according to age, sex, and tooth loss. Thirty-eight specimens were scanned with micro-computed tomography and reconstructed three-dimensionally. Sections were made parallel to the axis of each tooth, and the TBR was measured. Data were statistically analyzed with 1-way analysis of variance and paired t-tests (α=0.05). The TBR differed significantly (P<0.05) in each tooth region in the dentate group but not in the edentulous group. The mean TBR was higher in men than in women. The TBR reduced more with increasing age in the dentate group than in the edentulous group. The TBR varies according to the presence of teeth, sex, and age in specific teeth regions.
