Dental implant ends up in woman's sinus
Sinus headaches are the worst, and one Italian woman had the worst of them all -- probably because a dental implant had dug its way into her sinus cavity.

An amazing X-ray released by the New England Journal of Medicine on Wednesday shows a 0.79 inch metal screw in the 57-year-old's sinus, two years after she had oral surgery, NBC News reports. The screw was placed in her upper jaw in 2011 to hold in a fake tooth. When the tooth fell out, her gums healed over the screw, leading dentists to believe nothing was wrong.

After an invasive surgery in which a researcher removed the screw right beside her left eye, her horrible sinus symptoms went away, Live Science reports. (Source)
