      FRONTAL SINUS - MORPHOFUNCTIONAL ASPECTS WITH IMPACT IN DENTAL PRACTICE (Abstract): Introduction The frontal sinus has the largest variations in shape and size and has the most varied arrangements of the septa inside each compartment. Its morphofunctional and developmental features are closely related to dental medicine. Material and methods consist of 7 anatomically dissected specimens and 43 radiologically investigated patients. Results We considered in both anamical specimens and patients the morphometric features of the sinus and its variants. Anatomical variants of shape and dimensions are closely related to craniometric landmarks used in orthodontic practice and, especially with malocclusion. Conclusion The data we assesed highlight the mandatory need for dental practician to know the clinical importance of the anatomical features of the frontal sinus.
