Oroantral fistula is an epithelialized communication between the oral cavity and the maxillary sinus, which occurs most commonly as a complication of molar or premolar tooth extraction. There are many techniques to repair oroantral fistula. In this article, we described an alternative technique for the closure of oroantral fistula with the use of nasal septal bone, cartilage, buccal flap, and bone cement.

Keywords: Maxillary sinus, nasal septum; oroantral fistula.
