Publication Open AccessFracture of the Mandibular Ramus During Third Molar Removal: Case Report(2014-12-01T00:00:00Z) Mihmanli, Ahmet; BAYER, SUZAN; Demirtas, Nihat; Kazancioglu, Hakki Oguz; BAYER, SUZANImpacted tooth extraction is one of the most common operations in oral surgery. Although practitioners may encounter a variety of complications in the surgical period, mandibular fracture is rare and generally seen during third molar removal. It is reported that possible predisposing conditions include increased age, mandibular atrophy, concurrent presence of cyst or tumor, and osteoporosis. The detection of jaw fractures occurring in tooth extraction may be difficult. Moreover, treatment should be done immediately. Publication Open AccessLimitations of Panoramic Radiographs: Report of Two Cases(2014-09-01T00:00:00Z) Demirtas, Nihat; Mihmanli, Ahmet; Aytugar, Emre; BAYER, SUZAN; BAYER, SUZANPanoramic radiographs are valuable and technically easy procedures in determining lesions and the other pathological conditions of the jaw. However, it should be recognized that there are obvious limitations in these films. These limitations include distortions, magnifications, and difficulties in identifying the relationship of the lesions with vital structures. This study presented two cases that indicated the limitations of panoramic radiographs. In the first case, a radiolucent lesion was detected on panoramic radiography. The borders of the lesion were associated with the mandibular canal and mental foremen. In the second case, two radiolucent areas were seen on panoramic radiography. They were determined to be in relation to the maxillary sinus and mental foramen. Following the screening panoramic examination, cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) was obtained in both of the cases. The CBCT views demonstrated no relationship between the lesions and the anatomical structures detected in the panoramic radiographs. In conclusion, using only panoramic radiographs is not enough for the detection of the anatomic relationships and borders of the lesions. We suggest that dentists need 3D images to provide the correct information for presurgical assessments.
