The Canalis Sinuosus is a structure of the maxilla that allows the passage of the anterosuperior alveolar nerve and has a neurovascular activity. To visualize this structure, Conical Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is best recommended. This article aimed to report a case of facial pain after the insertion of a dental implant due to compression of the Canalis Sinuosus. Thus, the implant was removed, followed by the insertion of a bone graft. After that, the facial pain stopped. In conclusion, the identification of anatomical structures in preoperative examinations is essential in surgical dental procedures.
