Objectives: To assess the difficulty level of dental impaction treatment. This article discusses the problem of odontomy treatment based on the classification of maxillary canine impaction through panoramic radiograph examination and CBCT. Literature Review: Impacted tooth is pathological where the tooth fails to reach its normal functional position. Impaired maxillary canine second order placement after impact of third molars. The location of impacted jaw canine teeth most often occurs in the palatal region with a horizontal position according to the maxillary sinus and nasal cavity so that complications are required during odontomy. Conclusion: Based on this literature study, classification on impacted maxillary canine teeth has been developed based on panoramic (2D) and CBCT (3D) radiography, so thus resulting in a complete classification of impacted maxillary canine teeth and can be used as a predictor of the difficulty level of maxillary canine tooth impaction treatment.

Objectives: The aim of this report which contains three case series is to describe the radiographic characteristic of dentigerous cyst using CBCT. Case Report: In the case presented here, all of the three patients had dentigerous cyst developing in impacted tooth, but did not have the same symptoms. CBCT radiography examination was carried out to find out the margin of the cortical extension, the diameter of the lesion, and the relations between the lesion and adjacent structures. The result of CBCT examination shows there is a variation of radiograph characteristics of dentigerous cyst among the three patients. Conclusion: CBCT is a very useful complementary tool for diagnosis and surgical planning in cases of dentigerous cyst, because three-dimensional viewing of the structures offers greater accuracy in lesion identification.

Objectives: This article is aimed to widely share information and discuss further about the emerging transformation theories of the traditional radiation protection concept of ALARA into some more modern proposed concepts, particularly in dentomaxillofacial radiology. Literature Review: The concept of radiation protection in the use of X-ray modalities in the medical field has developed along with the development of science over past decades. The concept of ALARA which has been widely known for a long time and is used as a basic of theory or main reference in radiation protection policies in several countries or at the international level now becomes a traditional, conservative and invalid principle to apply. There are several emerging theories which are considered to be more valid and representative to replace the ALARA principle. Conclusion: Newer concepts of radiation protection that have developed, ALADAIP, are considered to be more precise and specific to be the main principle of radiation protection at this time, especially in the field of dentomaxillofacial radiology.

Objectives: This paper aims to determine the factors that influence the decision making of a general dentist to become a dentomaxillofacial radiologist, particularly in Indonesia. Material and Methods: This research used a descriptive design with survey techniques, and the research samples were residents of dentomaxillofacial radiology residency program and dentomaxillofacial radiologists in Indonesia. This research was conducted by the way respondents filled out questionnaires, based on the concept of marketing and purchasing on the expertise of dental radiology specialists. Results: There are variations in answers that are dominated by the value of product purchases as a dental radiology specialist is urgently needed. Conclusion: Dentomaxillofacial radiologist is a profession that is rarely found in Indonesia so it becomes a reliable job in the future as more experts are needed. The promotional activities of its residency program are still much of lack.

Objectives: COVID-19 has caused a negative impact and paralysis in the activities of the dentistry field because it has a high risk of contamination and transmission of the SARS-Cov-2. Even so, dental services cannot stop completely, especially for emergency cases, so that a new form of adaptation of normality is recommended for all dental services including the dentomaxillofacial radiology. This article aims to discuss the adaptation to the new normal era of in the dentomaxillofacial radiology examinations. Literature Review: The use of dentomaxillofacial radiographic examinations is indispensable for diagnosis and determination of treatment plans, but in the era of the COVID-19 pandemic and this new normal era, modifications are needed in stricter infection control in dentomaxillofacial R\radiology installations to prevent as much as possible the possibility of virus transmission SARS-Cov-2. The application of room controls, medical personnel, x-ray equipment, patients, and radiograph documents are very important in carrying out the adaptation to this new normal era. Conclusion: An adequate infection control and application of teleradiology are important things to be considered and implemented as a form of adaptation to new normal in dentomaxillofacial radiology installations in patient care as a way to prevent transmission and contamination of the SARS-Cov-2 virus during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Objectives: This review is aimed to propose a method that could be an alternative in taking intra-oral radiographs during the COVID-19 pandemic. Literature Review: The COVID-19 pandemic is the most concerning health problem in the world today. The transmission of COVID-19 is through direct or close contact with infected secretions or aerosol droplets. Individuals with COVID-19 may be asymptomatic or presymptomatic (20%-86% of all infections). Thus, patients with undiagnosed COVID-19 can come to dental clinics and Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology centers anytime. The Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology centers from dental clinics can be a source of transmission of COVID-19 to operator and dental patients. In extraoral radiography modification technique of Newman and Friedman, the sensor is placed on the cheek outside of the oral mucosa, so that the sensor does not contact the mucosal fluid from the patient. Conclusion: Newman and Friedman's extraoral radiography modification techniques can be use as an alternatives to periapical intraoral radiographs to minimize the transmission of COVID-19.

Objectives: To view a case report of mandibular ossifying fibroma (OF) in pediatric male. Case Report: A 12 year old child came to RSHS with a panoramic radiograph with the chief complaint of swelling in the right mandible. Panoramic radiograph shows well-defined mixed lesions with radiolucent content and snowflake-like opaque. MDCT shows a superior-inferior and bucco-lingual extension of the lesion. The suspicion of this case leads to Ossifying Fibroma with differential diagnosis of Adenomatoid Odontogenic Tumor (AOT) and Calcifiying Ephitelial Odontogenic Tumor (CEOT). Conclusion: OF cases in children, especially mandibular, are very rare, where the characteristics of the lesion can be well defined through the help of panoramic radiographs and MDCT. OF is a lesion that has benign characteristics with well-defined borders, and the most important lies in the presence of wrapping capsules and mixed internal structures accompanied by snowflake-like calcification.
