Maxillary premolar

Description

The maxillary sinuses are pyramid-shaped cavities in the mid-facial aspect of the skull.  Parts of the maxillary sinus may appear in many of the maxillary periapical projections.

The sinuses are radiolucent, air-filled cavities which occupy a large portion of the maxilla above the posterior teeth on each side.
