    You know, something very similar happened to me a few years ago. I was having an extraction, the dentist got really rough and annoyed and punctured my sinus and a piece of tooth went inside it. He had to dig around to find it and remove it. He said that it would heal up like normal and gave me antibiotics to prevent infection.
    It didn't heal and I had to have maxillofacial surgery to repair the damage.

    Well really some we have to deal a lot because of these dentist.....may be this is one of the reason why I afraid of dentist ;)....
    Also while dental implants surgery there is a high risk of getting sinus cavity puncture, so still in dilemma whether should go for it or not as this will also affect my dance practice.

    Isn't there a rule in the USA Dance rulebook about the length of the drill bits used? Daphne?

    Just got my first root canal. I have a tooth that is just "bad"... it has been drilled out 7 times in my life until now there is practically nothing left to do but a root canal.

    The endodontist said to me when he finished up.... "Oh by the way if you look here at the X-rays you will see my drill bit. It broke off in a canal and I wasn't able to recover it, so I just packed some amalgam around it. You should be fine...."
