Healing socket preservaton at sites 35, 36, 37
Socket preservations are present at sites 35, 36, and 37. The granular bone within these sockets appears denser than the surrounding trabecular bone, and slightly less concentrated towards the peripheries of these sockets.
1. Mature periapical cemental dysplasia at tooth 46D
There is a well-defined, irregularly shaped radiopacity which appears continuous with the distal root apex of tooth 46. This radiopacity also extends mesially to abut the mesial root apex of tooth 46. This radiopacity has a density similar to cortical bone and is surrounded by a thin radiolucent lining. There is evidence of resorption of the apical third of the distal root of tooth 46 by this entity. These findings likely represent a mature focus of periapical cemental dysplasia, which does not require treatment. However, periodic periapical radiographs of tooth 46 are recommended to monitor the progress of root resorption.
2. Severe cervical degenerative joint disease
Severe degenerative joint disease is present in the imaged portions of the cervical vertebrae. The radiographic findings that support this diagnosis are the reduced joint spaces, the ossification of the intervertebral regions, and the presence of subchondral sclerosis.
3. Calcified cornu of thyroid cartilage
The right cornu of the thyroid cartilage is partially calcified. This is an incidental finding with no clinical significance.
4. Calcified stylohyoid ligament
The right stylohyoid ligament is partially calcified. This is an incidental finding with no clinical significance.
