Submandibular displacement of a mandibular third molar root during extraction: a case report.

Kamburoglu K, Kursun S, Oztas B - Cases J (2010)

Bottom Line: Panoramic and the periapical radiographs showed presence of a radiopaque mass similar to that of a tooth root.Computed tomography scans were obtained for detailed radiographic examination, thereby the presence of a high density area in the submandibular region was detected.Under general anesthesia the displaced root was removed and the postoperative course was uneventful.

ABSTRACT
A 46-year-old female patient with complaints of pain and swelling on right submandibular region and limitation on mouth opening was reported. She had undergone an unsuccessful surgical procedure under local anesthesia performed by a general practitioner for removal of impacted mandibuler right third molar 1 week earlier. On clinical examination floor of the mouth was tender to palpation. Panoramic and the periapical radiographs showed presence of a radiopaque mass similar to that of a tooth root. Computed tomography scans were obtained for detailed radiographic examination, thereby the presence of a high density area in the submandibular region was detected. Under general anesthesia the displaced root was removed and the postoperative course was uneventful.

Figure 1: Intraoral film shows the presence of the tooth root in the submandibular region.

Mentions: A hard mass was palpated on the posterior region of the mouth floor on clinical examination. Radiographic examination was performed by use of intraoral periapical radiography, panoramic radiography and computed tomography (CT). (Figure 1, Figure 2 and Figure 3). Periapical and panoramic radiography showed the presence of a radiopaque lesion that is similar to the appearance of third molar tooth root. Two dimensional radiographs were inadequate in this case. For detailed radiographic examination, computed tomography scans were taken by spiral technique and continuous 2.5 mm axial sections were obtained. Images were reconstructed to form sagittal and coronal sections and examined. Computed tomography examination demonstrated the presence of a high density area located in the right submandibular region.
