INTRODUCTION The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the thickness and the anatomic characteristics of the Schneiderian membrane and cortical bone using limited cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scannning in patients referred for planning of apical surgery of maxillary molars. METHODS This controlled study included 2 cohorts of patients (n = 50 for each group). For patients in group 1 (with apical pathology), 3 measurements in millimeters were performed using coronal and sagittal… CONTINUE READING
