Caption: Figure 3: Occlusal radiograph
is showing a maxillary cross-sectional with a diffuse radiolucent lesion along with an impacted tooth and expansion in the buccal cortical plate
(10-13) Therefore, the aim of this prospective clinical study was to compare the effects of the tooth-tissue-borne and the tooth-borne expanders by analyzing occlusal radiographs
before and after RME.
The patient was further subjected to radiological investigation and occlusal radiograph
confirmed the clinical diagnosis of submandibular sialolithiasis, on both sides (Fig.
The maxillary true occlusal radiograph
revealed increased radiopacity and buccal cortical expansion with ground-glass appearance.
In the present case, the occlusal radiograph
of the mandible showed the sunburst pattern.
Intra-oral periapical radiograph, maxillary occlusal radiograph
and OPG revealed radiolucent area periapi-cal to 15, 16, 17 region.
A clear bony defect (Figure-1F) was observed along the cleft in upper standard occlusal radiograph
A Mandibular cross sectional occlusal radiograph
was taken which did not reveal any buccal or lingual cortical expansion.
