Closure of oroantral fistula

What is oroantral fistula?

An oroantral fistula is an opening formed between the maxillary sinus and the oral cavity. The cause can be various, including trauma, infection or the result of oral surgery. Treatment of this fistula includes surgical closure.

Surgical methods of closing an oroantral fistula

It is important to consult with an oral surgeon or an oral and maxillofacial specialist to determine the best treatment for oroantral fistula closure.

There are different surgical methods used to close an oroantral fistula, and the choice depends on the size and location of the fistula. One of the most common methods is so-called flap surgery, which involves taking skin or mucosa from another area of the oral cavity and moving it to the site of the fistula to close it. This surgery may also require additional bone or implant support to ensure that the fistula does not recur.

It is important to note that each technique is selected individually for each patient, depending on their specific needs and conditions. The surgeon will discuss with the patient the best option for him/her and explain any risks and complications that may arise.
