This study sought to identify and follow the course of the incisive canal in the mental interforaminal region of the human mandible and to describe other anatomical landmarks present in this region. Cone beam computerized tomography (CBCT) studies for 40 patients were collected from the database at the Department of Oral & Maxillofacial Radiology, School of(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to describe the diameter and the position of the greater palatine foramen (GPF) in relation to adjacent anatomical landmarks in the maxilla in a Lebanese population using cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) technology. MATERIALS AND METHODS CBCT images of 58 Lebanese adult patients were included in this study and a(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to describe the morphology of the component, greater palatine canal-pterygopalatine fossa (GPC-PPF), in a Lebanese population using cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) technology. MATERIALS AND METHODS CBCT images of 79 Lebanese adult patients (38 females and 41 males) were included in this study, and a total of 158 cases(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the mandibular lingual foramina (LF) and canals and their anatomic variations using cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) technology in a Lebanese population. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this study, we analyzed CBCT images of 90 adult Lebanese patients (41 males and 49 females). We assessed the number and(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the anatomy of the nasopalatine canal in a Lebanese population using cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) technology. MATERIALS AND METHODS CBCT images of 63 Lebanese adult patients were included in this study. The length, shape, diameter of the oral opening corresponding to the incisive foramen and(More)
A distinctive form of paradental cyst can occur on the buccal and apical aspects of erupted mandibular molars. This cyst has peculiar clinical and radiographic features, although the microscopic findings are the same as those of odontogenic inflammatory cysts. Diagnostic and therapeutic problems can occur when this lesion is misinterpreted as a radicular(More)
A case of fibrosis in the cheek of a 42-year-old woman is presented. The panoramic radiograph showed a well-defined, round radiopacity in the maxillary right third molar region. Other techniques revealed that it was a superimposition. The lesion was hard and painless and associated with hypertrophic scarring secondary to a burn injury many years earlier.(More)
Head and neck soft tissues calcifications can result from physiological or pathological mineralization. Some of these calcifications may be found on panoramic radiography because of their proximity to the focal trough and their superimposition over hard and soft tissue structures. Such radiographic images are common and create a diagnostic challenge.(More)
They are usually solitary in occurrence. The condition is frequently seen with the permanent dentition, usually associated with impacted mandibular third molars and maxillary canines. Pain, swelling, and facial asymmetry are occasionally seen; however, they are usually asymptomatic and observed during radiographic examination [4]. This report describes a(More)
