CT Dent presents a case where 3D imaging was used to identify the extent of hidden incisal trauma.
This dentoalveolar trauma case resulted from a fall from a bike, requiring an assessment of the upper anterior teeth to rule out fractures.
Fracture of the maxillary anterior alveolar process extending from the mesial surface of the right central incisor to the interproximal space between the maxillary left central and lateral incisors. Fracture through the apex of the left central incisor also seen. Periodontal ligament (PDL) spaces associated with the right central incisor and left lateral incisor are consistent with partial traumatic avulsion.
