Does computed tomographic assessment of inferior alveolar canal cortical integrity predict nerve exposure during third molar surgery?

Abstract

PURPOSE To evaluate the association between computed tomographic (CT) assessment of inferior alveolar nerve (IAN) canal cortical integrity and intraoperative IAN exposure. MATERIALS AND METHODS This was a retrospective cohort study. The study sample included patients considered at high risk for IAN injury based on panoramic findings. The primary predictor… (More)
