Objectives: The purpose of the current research was to employ dental cone-beam CT to investigate the connection between the floor of the maxillary sinus and the root apexes of the maxillary posterior teeth. Methods: In this study, dental cone-beam CT scans were used to examine the right and left maxillary sinuses of 100 different people. A radiology specialist in the head and neck area reviewed the photographs. The root points of the maxillary first premolars and molars, as well as the first and second premolars, were measured from the most inward point of the maxillary sinus floor. All of the premolars and molars on both sides had their averages, standard deviations, lowest, and highest values determined. T-tests were used to compare the measured values of the left and right sides of the body as well as those of male and female patients. Results: The buccodistal root tip of the second molar was the most distant from the sinus floor for both the right and left sides. There were no statistically significant differences between the sexes (P>.05) in the measurements taken of the patients' right and left sides. Conclusions: It is crucial to learn the anatomical connection between the sinus floor and the root ends of the maxillary posterior teeth before beginning sinus treatment.
