Subject: [roots] Distal translucency?

I did this 46 (#30 US) in 1990. Now 47 needs a new crown, because my 
Empress crown from 1995 fractured, I see a mid-rood translucency on the  
distal side of the 46 on the panoramic eclipse, yet a normel pdl.
Would  you trust that tooth? - Winfried

yes, Winfried, I am inclined to trust this tooth, since it seems you have intact PDL even in the questionable mid-root area - Kendel Hi Renaldas, I guess you may be right. I dug out an old panoramic picture from 1996 that we hadn't digitalized yet: Looks pretty much the same - Winfried
