CBCT In Endodontics
Many of the failed root canal treated teeth can be treated very effectively just by applying the diagnostic science of CBCT. Sharing a case of Re - endo where i could able to identify the reason for failure with the help of this scan. Referred case, RC treated 4 yrs back, persistent dull pain. They had decided to extract by guessing that there could be a vertical fracture.
On CBCT analysis, i came to know that the second mesial canal ( MB2) was not addressed initially. These are hard to see in IOPA'S most of the times. As soon as i cleaned that canal and gave an intracanal dressing the symptoms vanished. Its healing now. Thanks to CBCT.
