Abstract

Aim: To identify the prevalence of caries in the distal aspect of corresponding lower second molars in patients referred for lower third molar assessment. Materials and Methods: Patients, referred to Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology, King Khalid University Female Campus, for panoramic radiography, were included in this study. The age range of the patients was 17-60 years. Radiographic examinations were carried out. The angulations of impaction and incidence of caries of the adjacent teeth were determined. Results: 62 patients, out of 311 patients, had distal caries adjacent to impacted third molar. Highest number 85% (53 cases) of caries were associated with mesioangular impactions followed by vertical, distoangular, and horizontal impactions. Key Words: Distal cervical caries, impacted third molars, prevalence of caries
