Abstract [en]

Retention and impaction of the first and second permanent molar is a condition that has been little studied, and the cause is often unknown. Both diagnosis and treatment are often hard and complicated. Today, however, we have new diagnostic methods in the form of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) and genetics that can facilitate the diagnostic process.  

The objective was to compile knowledge regarding retention/impaction of the first and second permanent molar, the reason of retention and diagnosis of the condition and the possibilities of using CBCT in the diagnostic process. Focus will be on the different forms of retention/impaction and retention in connection with root resorption.  

A literature-search was conducted on PUBMED with relevant phrases. The search was made without time-frames and only English/Swedish language was included.

Six articles from the search where included and another 12 from references-lists and other sources. Use of CBCT showed an advantage compared to standard 2d-xray and panoramic images. Other diagnose-options include clinical signs and genetics.

The conclusion is that the diagnosis of retained/impacted first and second permanent molars is a complex process, considering the different types of retention/impaction that exists. Today the clinical work regarding these teeth is facilitated by the use of CBCT, genetics and the constant development of new knowledge all of which are important in the daily practice.
