Abstract

Intraoral periapical radiography and panoramic radiography used to be indispensable tools for hard tissue analysis in dental implant planning. However, their inherent 2D limitations have ushered in an era of Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) for a volumetric holistic analysis. This case report depicts accidental displacement of implant into a mandibular medullary bone space with deficient bone density in an otherwise healthy individual and its subsequent surgical retrieval and prognosis. We wish to highlight the importance of CBCT as a mandatory pre-surgical tool for implant planning in all cases to prevent intraoperative adverse events, irrespective of their medical status.
