The literature suggests that the degree of pneumatization
is often variable (Scuderi et al.
Especially by comparing mastoid pneumatization
in patients grouped in the different ages, the area of pneumatization
might be a consequence of not only long lasting but also severe and intractable inflammation influenced by the therapeutic methods and surrounding environmental factors in early medical history.
All patients had diagnosis of dental loss with alveolar ridge atrophy associated with maxillary sinus pneumatization
In the case of our patient, trauma could be the potential factor for both middle turbinate pneumatization
and osteoma development.
Morphologic and roentgenologic aspects of the temporal bone study of 536 bones with special reference to pneumatization
Arch Otolaryngol 1938;28(5):748-67.
Most certainly an acquired condition, SSS should be distinguished from maxillary sinus hypoplasia, which is characterized by lack of pneumatization
laterally into the malar eminence and inferiorly into the maxillary alveolar ridge.
Peri apical pathology, widely divergent roots, excessive peri apical pressure and sinus pneumatization
are some of the precipitating factors leading to displacement of teeth into sinus.
Subjective pulsatile tinnitus associated with extensive pneumatization
of temporal bone.
However implants placement can be limited due to situations of either reduced bone height or presence of anatomical structures in the extensive maxillary sinus pneumatization
and mandibular canal in proximity to tooth sockets (ARLIN, 2006; CHIZOLINI et al.
Application of implant in the posterior maxilla often poses multiple therapeutic challenges due to the atrophy of the alveolar ridge and sinus pneumatization
Frontal sinuses formation starts at two years old, but its pneumatization
occurs only around 6-7 years old, because of the migration of the ethmoidal cell to the frontalis bone (PIGNATARY et al.
In the present study, pneumatization
of the uncinate process was found in 4 (5.
