Maxillary sinuses are cavities that are filled with air and are lined with mucus membranes. The function of maxillary sinuses is believed to include warming, moistening, and filtering inspired air and maximizing voice quality.

The maxillary sinuses consist of variety of elements, including cilia and respiratory epithelium, mucus membranes and ostia. They drain into the nasal meati. Conditions that can afflict the maxillary sinuses include upper respiratory infections, sinusitis, respiratory allergies, smoking, sinus fractures, and trauma.
