Case of the Week: Horizontal Impaction 5


This week I have a neat case of a horizontally impacted tooth.  While it’s not uncommon for teeth to be horizontally impacted, this tooth is sort of ‘hidden’.  Look for the radiopaque rotated ‘V’ in the right mandible.  The ‘V’ appearance is the enamel of the impacted tooth.  There are also hearing aids evident on this pantomograph.

Enjoy!
