Dents incluses : apport de la tomographie volumique à faisceaux coniques dans le diagnostic et aide à la thérapeutique

Abstract : Dental impaction is a therapeutic issue and requires multidisciplinary management, based on early and conscious diagnosis in order to avoid any complications or loss of chance for the patient. Conventional X-ray examinations are simple, easily accessible, inexpensive, and not very radiating, but tend to give way to 3D imaging. The limits of 2D imaging are precise determination of the location of the impacted tooth in 3 dimensions of space, the identification of related complications and the relationship with the surrounding anatomical structures. The advent of CBCT has improved patient care by overcoming its limits. It contributes in diagnosis and surgical planning through 1-1 scale reconstructions, without deformation. Its technical advantages concern resolution, artifacts, acquisition time and irradiation make it a reliable alternative to CT scann, respecting principles of justification and optimization. Current recommendations do not recommand systematic use of CBCT in case of impaction, however we have shown that, after a diagnosis of impaction, it participates in clinical success by avoiding use of multiple 2D examinations, which create uncertainties about quality and duration of treatment.
