Abstract: We introduce a case with an unusual foreign body (dental implant around 8cm in length) which entered in the maxillary sinus after sinus lift procedure. A 65 year - old patient reported at the outpatient department with the complaint of pain on right cheek region post implant placement. Examination revealed displaced implant into the sinus with positional changes seen in panoramic and Cone Beam Computed Tomography images. This article describes the use of the functional endoscopy assisted Caldwell luc approach for the implant removal. This was followed - up with a two - layer soft tissue closure.
