Imaging Studies

Four films (maxillary anterior, 3 periapical from various angles) are recommended to evaluate dental injury, displacement, or possible complete intrusion. Because these specialized films are often not available in the emergency department, a limited facial series and a Panorex may be used to evaluate foreign bodies, displacement, and maxillary and mandibular fractures.

A Panorex may be used to assess mandibular fracture.
