Cone Beam CT images in the bone window. Axial, coronal and sagittal planes.
Implant analysis requested. Relevant history – confirm absence of pathology (including in apical area UL2, UL3, where on peri-apical films there has been a historic radiolucency). Potential implant treatment planning for either removable implant supported overdenture or fixed bridgework.
Rule out pathology.
Maxilla: cross-sections of the anterior maxilla have been provided below illustrating an irregular area of low-density in the alveolar process to the left of the midline.
Sinuses: mild to moderate increases in the thickness and density of the tissues lining the right and left maxillary sinuses were noted.
Nasal cavity: a mild deviation of the nasal septum was noted.
Other findings: no abnormalities detected.
Dental findings: no abnormalities detected.
Maxilla: please see the detailed descriptions associated with the cross-sections illustrating the maxilla.
Sinuses: the radiographic findings appear to be consistent with a mild mucositis/sinusitis of the right and left maxillary sinuses. Review of the patient’s clinical history for chronic allergy or sinusitis is suggested; physician referral for more thorough evaluation is suggested if merited by clinical findings and symptoms.
Nasal cavity: deviation of the nasal septum is a common incidental radiographic finding and does not require treatment or referral unless the patient exhibits difficulty breathing through the nose.
Implant measurements:have been provided for various areas the maxilla and may not correspond to the final sites selected for implant placement but provide an indication of the bone available in various areas.
