AbstractObjectives: To see the correlation between changes in incisure depth of mandible on an orthopantomogram with bone mineral density and whether or not it can be employed for screening and early detection of osteoporosis.
The current study was planned to see the correlation between changes in incisure depth of mandible on an orthopantomogram (OPG) with bone mineral density and whether or not it can be employed for screening and early detection of osteoporosis.
Incisure depth was studied by using software K-Pacs-Lite at zoom factor A-0.
The changes seen in incisure depth of mandible were a measure of both osteoporosis and age.
