Objectives: This research is aimed to find out the advantages of alternative tools as a guide for measuring the vertical dimensions of teeth on periapical radiographs and comparing the lengths of vertical dimensions of teeth on periapical radiographs with the actual lengths. Materials and Methods: This research is using analytical observational study with a cross-sectional study design. The research data were primary data from 30 periapical radiographs of two maxillary central incisors, which were photographed using a periapical projection with bisecting technique and a periapical film that had been attached with wire on the outer layer of the film wrap. The data were analyzed by a paired T-Test using SPSS software. Results: The p-value of ALT (Actual Length of the Tooth) for tooth 11 was 0.53 and for tooth 21 was 0.140. These results show a p-value > 0.05. Conclusion: There is no statistically significant difference between the calculation of tooth length on periapical radiographs using alternative tools and the calculation of actual tooth length so that alternative tools can be used as a guide for measuring the vertical dimensions of teeth on periapical radiographs.

Objectives: This case report is aimed to describe radiographic features of multiple hypercementosis in an incidental case. Case Report: A 38-year-old man came to the Dental Hospital of Padjadjaran University with a complaint that he had lost some of his teeth and wanted to make dentures because he found it difficult to chew food. Then the patient was referred for a radiographic examination, the results of a panoramic radiograph found abnormalities in the form of thickening of the cementum at the apex of the remaining teeth. The teeth were in vital condition and there were no clinical signs. Conclusion: Based on the examination results, it was concluded that the panoramic radiograph showed excessive cementum thickening and root enlargement on the remaining teeth. This case leads to a radiological diagnosis suspect of multiple hypercementosis or cementum hyperplasia.

Objectives: This report is aimed to present a case of an uncovered fusion of two seemingly separated periapical rarefying osteitis lesions on two adjacent teeth through Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) imaging and to describe the significance of a comprehensive multiplanar appraisal in interpreting CBCT radiographs. Case Report: An 18-year-old female patient came to Universitas Airlangga Dental Hospital for a CBCT examination of her right central maxillary incisor (tooth 11) as referred by her dentist. Based on the clinical report provided, the patient had a slight palpable swelling of the labial gingival anterior maxilla with sign of crepitus. Caries lesions were found on teeth 11 and 12 in which the vitality tests showed negative responses. Thus, it was provisionally suspected as a periapical inflammatory lesion. CBCT was done and the 3D-reconstructed images of the bone showed there were two neighboring radiolucent ovoid lesions attached on one-third apical of teeth 11 and 12, separated by a firm-apparent cortex. It was later discovered that the two lesions were actually fused as one elongated and extensive lesion through the multiplanar appraisal of three orthogonal views provided in CBCT application. Conclusion: CBCT 3D-reconstructed and panoramic reformatted images should be used with caution, either for linear measurement or diagnostic purposes, as they should only be used to illustrate the diagnosis and/or provide a better understanding of the problem to the patients and their treatment plans. A comprehensive multiplanar appraisal is required to provide a diagnostically complete interpretation.

Objectives: The rate of mandibular anesthesia failures is higher than maxilla, where the highest percentage is the inferior alveolar nerve block. One alternative action in case of failure is a mental nerve block, located in the mental foramen. Thus, knowledge of the mental foramen anatomy is required to avoid failure in anesthesia. The study is to determine the vertical and horizontal position of the mental foramen, which refers to the crest of the alveolar bone, using panoramic radiographs. Materials and Methods: The type of research that is used is descriptive with a purposive sampling method. The object of research is panoramic radiographs of patients who are in Dentistry Radiology Installation of Dental Hospital Universitas Padjadjaran, Bandung with a total sample of 352 panoramic radiographs. This research measured the vertical and horizontal distances between the mental foramen to the alveolar bone crest between 1st premolar teeth and 2nd premolar teeth. Results: The average value of the vertical distance mental foramen to the alveolar bone crest is 13,43 mm. The average value of the horizontal distance from mental foramen to 1st premolar teeth is 6,97 mm and the horizontal distance from mental foramen to 2nd premolar teeth is 2,80 mm. Conclusion: Mental foramen is closer to the 2nd premolar teeth based on the horizontal position and located below the apex based on the vertical position.

Objectives: This report is aimed to compare diagnostic accuracy of impacted maxillary canine and dentigerous cyst in determining its dimension and position using panoramic and CBCT (cone beam computed tomography) imaging. Case Report: A 30-year-old woman was referred to Department of Dental and Maxillofacial Radiology with the suspect of upper right impacted canine. She had chief complaint of swelling pain in the palate for ± 3 months. Panoramic showed 13 impacted superiorly to the maxillary sinus and surrounding with a radiolucent lesion attached on cementoenamel junction. However, panoramic has limitations in assessing the labio-palatal position of impacted canine and lesion extension. CBCT revealed the tooth located closer to palate and no sign of direct contact with sinus. The radiolucent lesion has destructed anteroposterior aspect of cortical plate which explain the reason of swelling and pain. Conclusion: Precise dimension and position are important to avoid mistakes since impacted maxillary canine accompanied with dentigerous cyst required invasive management. In our case, panoramic and CBCT contributed to guide the diagnosis and help the referrer determining the exact site of surgery.

Objectives: This review article is aimed to determine the accuracy of extraoral periapical radiography as a determinant of the working length in endodontic treatment and the advantages and disadvantages of this technique. Review: Endodontic treatment is a dental treatment for damages reaching the pulp which aims to maintain the tooth. One way to succeed in endodontic treatment is to determine an accurate working length. The working length can be determined by intraoral periapical radiography examination but some people are sensitive to intraoral film placement. The placement of film on periapical radiography extraorally is needed. Conclusion: The study showed that the extraoral periapical radiography had more than 75% accuracy in determining the working length depending on angulation used. This review concludes that extraoral periapical radiography can be used in patients who can not tolerate to intraoral film placement with an accuracy that is not significantly different from that of the intraoral periapical radiography but is not meant to be replaced intraoral periapical radiography.

Objectives: This review article is aimed to review various studies evaluating changes in peri-implant height and bone density post-implantation using periapical radiographs. Review: This scoping review was carried out according to Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Review and Meta-analysis for Scoping Review (PRISMA-Scr) by reviewing literatures related to the evaluation of peri-implant bone post-implantation using periapical radiographs. PRISMA-ScR is a guide for writing a scoping review to increase the relevance and transparency of methodological and research findings. Literature searches were performed on PubMed NCBI, Science Direct, EBSCOHost, and Clinicalkey databases with the keywords “((dental implant) AND (periapical radiograph)) AND (peri-implant) OR (alveolar bone))”. Literature screening was carried out based on the predetermined inclusion and exclusion criteria that have been set in journals published in 2016-2020. A total of 18 eligible studies were included in this study. The data from the included studies was then synthesized, and the literatures were reviewed. Conclusion: Peri-implant bone generally experiences a decrease in height (marginal bone loss) and an increase in density during the process of bone adaptation to functional loading. The design and placement techniques of the implants have an impact on the extent of the change in bone height.

Objectives: The purpose of this study was to determine the sensitivity of using this panoramic radiograph in diagnosing maxillary sinusitis. Review: Scoping Review with article searches was carried out through NCBI's PubMed database, Science Direct, and EbscoHost from January 2020 to March 2021, with the inclusion criteria being articles published in 2010-2020. Conclusion: Panoramic radiographs were found to be less sensitive for diagnosing maxillary sinusitis, but due to the low availability and accessibility of CBCT and CT, and related to their expensive cost and high radiation, panoramic radiographs are considered to be quite optimal.

Objectives: This case report is aimed to discuss case findings of Progressive Systemic Sclerosis (PSS), an overview of the characteristics in the form of osteolysis on one side of the mandible, and a theoretical review. Case Report: A 30-year old male patient came to an oral surgeon after tooth extraction. Clinical extraoral examination revealed hyperpigmentation on the right side of the face. A radiological study showed widening periodontal space on posterior teeth, and the angles of the mandibular arch, the jaw branch and the mandibular condyle neck were dissolved in the form of bone resorption. Conclusion: Characteristics of Progressive Systemic Sclerosis (PSS) in radiographs appear in the form of expansion of the periodontal space and osteolysis of the mandibular angle, branch, and even condyle. This disease is caused by an autoimmune disease that affects the entire body, but it can manifest on one side of the body.
