Caldwell Luc is a historical procedure for the maxillary sinus, which is more than 100-year-old and is still a useful procedure of choice among surgeons in certain maxillary sinus pathologies. In the era of endoscopic sinus surgeries, the usefulness of Caldwell Luc is often questioned. We report two cases of chronic maxillary sinus disease one with an iatrogenic tooth root in the sinus for 2 years and the other with a mucosal polyp both of which were managed endoscopically earlier but with recurrence of symptoms. Both the cases were managed using a modified Caldwell-Luc approach. The patients were asymptomatic postoperatively with no recurrence.
