Author(s): Dr. Samir Jain, Dr. Kumar Gaurav Dubey
Abstract: Dental implants are rapidly gaining acceptance as the replacement therapy of choice in orthodontic surgery. In order for implants to be successful, the orthodontic surgeon needs a thorough understanding of the underlying bone structure and its viability. CT scanning offers detailed information on orthodontic anatomy that can aid in developing an effective therapy. DentaScan performs real time Oblique and Panorex reformations specific to CT dental imaging. DentaScan offers innovative features that assist clinicians with both routine and difficult clinical cases. The present study was planned to assess the relationships and distance between maxillary root tips and the maxillary sinus floor by using DentaScan. The study was conducted on the 25 patients admitted to Department of the Dentistry in ANM Medical College and Hospital Gaya, Bihar. The patients enrolled patients having normally erupted right and left maxillary first premolar to maxillary second molar. Hence from present findings will be helpful for knowledge of anatomical positions of molar root tips against maxillary sinus floor, for pre-endodontic and pre-implantation strategy making. A different relationship was observed between the maxillary posterior teeth and floor of maxillary sinus with the buccal and palatal roots.
