Abstract

NOFFKE, CEE; RAUBENHEIMER, EJ  and  CHABIKULI, NJ. Radiopacities in soft tissue on dental radiographs: Diagnostic considerations. S. Afr. dent. j. [online]. 2015, vol.70, n.2, pp.53-57. ISSN 0375-1562.

Radiopacities in soft tissue in the maxillofacial and oral region frequently manifest on panoramic radiographs in various locations and in several sizes and shapes. Accurate diagnosis is important as the finding may indicate serious disease states. This manuscript provides guidelines for the interpretation of soft tissue radiopacities seen on dental radiographs and recommends additional radiological views required to locate and diagnose the calcifications.
