Multiple views demonstrating fracture plane in tooth 47

These orthogonal cross sectional images demonstrate the curved fracture plane in tooth 47 from various perspectives. The fracture extends subcrestally to the midroot level on the lingual surface of the mesial root of the tooth. The tooth may not be restorable.

1. Vertical fracture in tooth 47

A vertical fracture is present in tooth 47. This fracture extends through the mesial and lingual furcations of the tooth, and has affected the mesiolingual cusp of the tooth. The fracture extends to the midroot level on the lingual surface of the mesial root of the tooth. Rarefying osteitis is present at both root apices of tooth 47. Vertical bone loss is also present in the lingual furcal region, as well as the mesial surface of the mesial root of the tooth. Tooth 47 may not restorable.

Axial views of tooth 47

The fracture plane that extends through the mesiolingual cusp and the lingual aspect of the coronal half of the mesial root of tooth 47 is evident in these images. Note the presence of rarefying osteitis in the periapical regions of the roots of the tooth, as well as the extension of this rarefying osteitis to the alveolar crest along the buccal furcation.

Mesiodistal views of tooth 47

These mesiodistal cross sectional images demonstrate the vertical bone loss present at the mesial surface of the mesial root of tooth 47, as well as the visible vertical fracture plane on the buccal surface of the tooth.

Buccolingual views of tooth 47

These buccolingual cross sectional images demonstrate the vertical bone loss in the buccal furcal region of tooth 47, as well as the fracture plane on the mesial surface of the crown of the tooth. The mesial root apex of the tooth is separated from the alveolar canal by 9.3 mm. The distal root apex of the tooth is separated from the canal by 9.6 mm.
