The importance of the study in chronic periapical osteitis at the level of inferior wisdom molar is justified by the vast pallet of complications determined by these diseases and often mentioned in the literature of specialty. The present study underlines the fact the in the diagnosis and treatment of chronic periapical osteitis, the simple radiological investigation is not sufficient, but it
should be completed with an anatomical-pathological investigation for being able to establish a diagnosis of certitude. For establishing a diagnosis it is not sufficient to only read correctly a good radiography, all these data should corroborate with clinical data, but even in this corroboration certain facts should be considered and they are: some lesions do not have a clinical symptomatology (cysts, benign tumors, some caries, some anomalies etc.); not always there is a correlation between the extent of the radiological lesion
and the intensity of clinical symptomatology; the osseous inflammatory lesions in the acute form appear radiographicaly after 4-7 days from the clinical debut of the disease; the radiographic image persists after the clinical healing for weeks, months or even years (in the case of fractures).
