CBCT in Endodontics to Treat Difficult Anatomy & Preserve Teeth
Posted Apr 29 2014 3:59pm
A patient recently came to SSE for a second opinion. She had a root canal on #21 just a month earlier by an endodontist. After the root canal, she continued to have pain and the root canal was retreated shortly thereafter. The patient was then sent to a periodontist who recommended extraction and placement of an implant. Aware of endodontic surgical options, her general dentist recommended she come for an additional evaluation. The patient was highly motivated to save her natural tooth.
Our exam found #21 normal to percussion, normal probings and swelling on the buccal. An additional canal was suspected, so CBCT was taken for further review.
