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.

f3-0010246: Occlusal radiography of the patient.

Mentions: Subsequent radiographic examination revealed an ankylosed second primary molar which caused impaction of the second premolar and tipping of the first molar. The second premolar which had a dilacerated root failed to erupt and was lying close to the lower border of the mandible (Figures 2 and 3). The tooth appeared to be in close proximity to the inferior alveolar canal as clearly seen in panoramic radiograph (Figure 2).
