Radiographic Impression


Reconstructed panoramic radiograph


Dental Findings:
Maxillary left central incisor region; a small supernumerary tooth exhibiting internal/external resorptive changes was observed on the distal surface of the alveolar process with the crown adjacent to the lingual surface of the canine-first premolar interproximal space. The area also contains a large well circumscribed area of low density/radiolucency suggestive of a previous periapical radiolucency/low density. Correlation of the radiographic observation with the patient’s clinical/surgical history is suggested.


Radiographic Impression:
Maxillary left central incisor region. The labial cortical plate appears to be very thin are absent. In addition, a small ovoid area of increased density was noted within the extraction socket suggestive of a small residual root/bone fragment [arrow].
Maxillary right central incisor. A small well circumscribed periapical radiolucency/low density was observed associated with the apex of the tooth. The radiographic appearance is consistent with periapical inflammatory disease of pulpal origin. Appropriate clinical evaluation is suggested.
