Dental caries in an impacted mandibular second molar: Using cone beam computed tomography to explain inconsistent clinical and radiographic findings
Cantelmi, Paul / Singer, Steven R. / Tamari, Katrin
Benefits of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) over traditional panoramic radiography for diagnosis and treatment planning have been reported. This article presents a case where CBCT was used to identify the potential route of caries infection from the oral cavity to an impacted mandibular second molar.
