Shilpa Syam, ‎ T. N. Uma Maheswari

Aim: To study the prevalence of various incidental findings in the maxillofacial region using ‎orthopantomograms (OPG).‎ Materials & Methods: ‎‎70 OPGs were obtained from the Oral Radiology Department of a dental hospital and assessed ‎for incidental findings unrelated to routine dental complaints.‎ Result: Most prevalent incidental finding in OPG was maxillary sinus haziness followed by impacted ‎maxillary canines.‎ Conclusion: ‎Patients can visit the dentist for orofacial pain, which could be related to maxillary sinus ‎pathologies. Hence, clinicians should consider non-odontogenic aetiologies for pain in the ‎orofacial region‎‎‎‎.
