Abstract

The oroantral communication are common complications that result of traumatic exodontia of upper teeth whose roots have intimate relationship with the maxillary sinus. This case reports the procedure used to close an oroantral communication using the buccal adipose body. A 79-year-old female patient from Belo Horizonte-MG, in good general health, was attended in a clinic complaining of a pain in superior right molars a few months ago, however it was intensifying and it persisted with the use of the analgesics. It was realized exodontia in teeth affected and with exposition of the oroantral communication it was realized closure with the buccal adipose body. The results were a success and without complications after five months of follow up. According to the report discussed in the present paper, the use of the buccal adipose body is a safe and reliable procedure for closing an oroantral communication.
