Various pressure-indicating media are available to assess the adaptation of the intaglio surface of a removable dental prosthesis at the insertion and follow-up appointments. This clinical report describes the use of an elastomer that entered the maxillary sinus through an undetected oroantral communication at the 24-hour follow-up for an immediate maxillary complete removable dental prosthesis. A Caldwell-Luc sinusotomy procedure was required to remove the material, and the patient required over 1 year of healing time before his reported symptoms resolved.
