Impacted tooth 35

Tooth 35 is impacted and demonstrates an inverted orientation in the alveolar process of site 35. The crown of tooth 35 is located mesial to the apical third of the mesial root of tooth 36. Root development in tooth 35 appears 30% complete. The developing root apex of this tooth is located immediately apical to the mesial root apex of the deciduous tooth 75. The follicle surrounding the crown of tooth 35 appears normal, and there are no signs of ankylosis. There is no evidence of root resorption in the adjacent tooth 36. The crown of this impacted tooth can be surgically accessed from the buccal aspect of the alveolar process, just mesial to the apical third of the mesial root of tooth 36.

Left inferior alveolar nerve canal inferior to crown of tooth 35

The left inferior alveolar nerve canal passes immediately inferior to the crown of tooth 35. There is mild compression of the nerve canal in this region.

Retained tooth 75

The deciduous tooth 75 is retained within the alveolar process of site 35, and exhibits mild physiologic root resorption. The developing root apex of tooth 35 is located immediately apical to the residual mesial root apex of tooth 75.

Normal tooth 36

Tooth 36 appears normal radiographically. There is no evidence of displacement or root resorption in association with its close proximity to the impacted tooth 35. The crown of tooth 35 is located mesial to the apical third of the mesial root of tooth 36.

Axial views of the mid-third quadrant

These axial cross-sectional images demonstrate that the crown of tooth 35 is positioned mesial to the apical third of the mesial root of tooth 36. There is no evidence of root resorption in tooth 36. The left inferior alveolar nerve canal passes inferior to the crown of tooth 35.
