Two things come to mind. The protective layer on the detector is damaged at that point. This happens when you sterilize the plates using gas and the protective layer gets a small bubble. This is usually not discovered until a radiograph is made. Another possibility is that since this is at the lip line, the patient could have had a scar from a previous injury giving that area more density.

Subject: [Oradlist] PSP Plate artifact
I was wondering if anyone has seen an artifact similar to the one displayed on the mesial of the right maxillary lateral incisor and distal of the central incisor that looks like composite resins, and has an idea of what caused it. We are using the ScanX plates and scanners.
