What are possible complications of a chronic infection in the sinus because of a perforation from a root canal?

What are possible complications of a chronic infection in the sinus because of a perforation from a root canal?

See Endodontist : It depends upon what was placed into your sinus. If it was the disinfecting solution the denist uses to clean your canals then the sinus usually recovers with no intervention.
