Value of Computed Tomography (CT) in Imaging the Morbidity of Submerged Molars: A Case Report.

Kırzıoḡlu Z, Karayılmaz H, Baykal B - Eur J Dent (2007)

Bottom Line: Submerged primary molars can be difficult to manage due to the developing dentition.Therefore these cases require sophisticated imaging techniques in order to locate the vital structures.In this case report, a 17 year old girl who had a retained and submerged deciduous molar which caused impaction of the second premolar and tipping of the first molar was presented.In addition, value of computed tomography (CT) for locating the vital anatomic structures was discussed.In our case, CT has been supplied effective information about localization of the vital structures and amount of bone volume during the diagnosis and treatment planning period in addition to the routine dental radiographies.

ABSTRACT
Submerged primary molars can be difficult to manage due to the developing dentition. Rarely in some severe cases, may the surgical interventions be required while ensuring the vital structures are protected. Therefore these cases require sophisticated imaging techniques in order to locate the vital structures.In this case report, a 17 year old girl who had a retained and submerged deciduous molar which caused impaction of the second premolar and tipping of the first molar was presented. In addition, value of computed tomography (CT) for locating the vital anatomic structures was discussed.In our case, CT has been supplied effective information about localization of the vital structures and amount of bone volume during the diagnosis and treatment planning period in addition to the routine dental radiographies.

Mentions: Seventeen years-old Caucasian girl was presented to the clinics of the Department of Pedodontics, Faculty of Dentistry, Süleyman Demirel University for routine dental inspection. The medical history of the patient was insignificant. Clinical examination showed normal development of the dentition except for missing mandibular, right permanent second premolar and first molar. No sign of swelling, redness or discomfort was noted in the region. Only a small cusp of a tooth can be seen inside the gingiva (Figure 1).
