Fig. 3. Analysis of the maxillary third molar in a coronal section of cone-beam computed tomography. The distance from the tooth to the floor of the maxillary sinus was measured. The shortest distance from the buccal and palatal sides of the cementoenamel junction (A, B) and root apex (C, D) to the floor of the maxillary sinus were measured. Depending on the angle between the vertical line passing through the midpalate and the long axis of the tooth, inclination was divided into buccal, vertical, and palatal (E).
