Case Report

Osteomyelitis of the Mandible Caused by Late Fracture following Third Molar Extraction

Figure 8

Three-dimensional computed tomographic (3D CT) scan obtained during the initial visit (a). 3D CT (b) and coronal CT (c) scans obtained 6 months after sequestrectomy and curettage. Although the CT obtained at the initial visit shows destruction of buccal cortical bone from the socket to the right mandibular angle and formation of bone sequestrum (a), CT obtained at 6 months shows bone healing at the lesion site, except for the remaining slight slit of the buccal cortical bone (b, c).
