Normal tooth 43

Tooth 43 appears normal radiographically, and has not been affected by the fixation plate that is positioned mesiobuccally to it. The fixation screw passes apically and slightly mesially to the root apex of tooth 43. The periodontal ligament space is of uniform width around the root circumference of the tooth and the lamina dura is intact. Note the distal dilaceration of the apical third of the root of tooth 43.

Normal tooth 42

Tooth 42 demonstrates a Weine's Type IV root canal morphology and appears normal radiographically. The tooth has not been affected by the fixation plate that is positioned buccally to it. The root apex of tooth 42 measures 1.8mm from the superior border of the fixation plate. Two fixation screws are located in the apical region of tooth 42, one mesially and one distally. The periodontal ligament space is of uniform width around the root circumference of the tooth and the lamina dura is intact.

Normal tooth 41

Tooth 41 demonstrates a Weine's Type II root canal morphology and appears normal radiographically. The tooth has not been affected by the fixation plate that is positioned buccally to it. The root apex of tooth 41 measures 1.7mm from the superior border of the fixation plate and a fixation screw. The periodontal ligament space is of uniform width around the root circumference of the tooth and the lamina dura is intact.

Normal tooth 31

Tooth 31 demonstrates a Weine's Type II root canal morphology and appears normal radiographically. The tooth has not been affected by the fixation plate that is positioned buccally to it. The root apex of tooth 31 measures 2.8mm from the superior border of the fixation plate. Two fixation screws are located in the apical region of tooth 31, one mesially and one distally. The periodontal ligament space is of uniform width around the root circumference of the tooth and the lamina dura is intact.

Normal tooth 32

Tooth 32 demonstrates a Weine's Type II root canal morphology and appears normal radiographically. The tooth has not been affected by the fixation plate that is positioned buccally to it. The root apex of tooth 32 measures 1.1mm from the fixation plate and a fixation screw. The periodontal ligament space is of uniform width around the root circumference of the tooth and the lamina dura is intact.

Normal tooth 33

Tooth 33 demonstrates a Weine's Type IV root canal morphology and appears normal radiographically. The tooth has not been affected by the fixation plate that is positioned mesiobuccally to it. The fixation screw passes mesial to the apical third of the root of tooth 33. The periodontal ligament space is of uniform width around the root circumference of the tooth and the lamina dura is intact. Note the slight distal dilaceration of the apical third of the root of tooth 33.

Orthogonal views of fixation plate in anterior mandible

The genioplasty appears to have been successful, and appears to be healing normally. The fixation plate in the anterior mandible is fully seated. All of the fixation screws appear normal.
