Healing extraction sockets in anterior mandible
There are healing extraction sockets at sites 33, 32, 31, 41, 42, and 43, as evidenced by the presence of granular bone within these sockets. The density of this granular bone is similar to that of the surrounding trabecular bone.
1. Widened PDL space on tooth 34
Tooth 34 has been endodontically-treated. There is widening of the periodontal ligament space around the root apex of tooth 34. The lingual canal and the apical half of the buccal canal in tooth 34 appear unfilled. These findings suggest the presence of persistent low-grade endodontic pathology or a recent post-treatment appearance.
2. Detached genial tubercles
There is a large fragment of detached bone located immediately lingual to the mandibular symphyseal region. There is an irregularly shaped concavity along the lingual surface of the alveolar process of the mandible adjacent to this region, and the lingual cortical plate appears focally thinned but intact. These findings likely represent prominent genial tubercles which have fractured and healed with nonunion. In the absence of any functional deficits, such as difficulty speaking, swallowing, or moving the tongue, this likely represents a non-significant incidental finding.
