Endodontic treatment is considered to be one of the most common procedures in modern dentistry, which also leads to increase of the complications. Objective: to establish the anthropometric characteristics of the structure of the facial skull and maxillary sinus, determining the development of complications of the endodontic treatment of upper jaw. Materials and methods. Measurements have been performed on 105 three-dimensional CT scan of the head, 75 have been in the control group, 30 cases have got foreign bodies of the maxillary sinuses on the CT. Results. We have established the correlation between obtained anthropometrical parameters such as height and width of the face with the type of maxillary sinus pneumatization, also we have studied the critical thickness of the bone plate over the tooth root, which is the main predisposing factor in the development of complications. Conclusion. It is possible to form risk groups according to the type of the structure of the front-skeleton, for additional studies of further endodontic interventions that may reduce their frequency.

Modern techniques of radiological examination form the basis for additional diagnostic and planning methods of surgical treatment in oral surgery and implantology. Assessment of maxillary sinus condition and sinuslifting results is a part of preoperative examination before dental implantation. The estimated results of digital volume tomography after sinuslifting have shown that 51,1% of patients have lack of volume of implant on the medial wall of the sinus. That does not allow placing dental implant in correct position. The digital volume tomography is highly informative and convenient radiological examination method in diagnosis of maxillary sinus condition, assessment of sinuslifting results and application of further dental implantation
