Monitoring the lucency - Courtesy ROOTS

From: Sergiu Nicola

Subject: [roots] how would you approach a case like this one?

The patient was sent for retreatment of #4.5 but the gp asked me if i can perform vitality tests on #4.6
and asked me what should he do with #4.6 and the radiolucency associated with that tooth.

Well, #4.6 is vital, it responded wnl to all tests, no perio problems.

So the question is : what do you think it might be? what would be your approach in a case like this?

Would you leave it alone and just monitor the lucency? - Sergiu
