Pain to percussion on upper molar - Courtesy ROOTS

Subject: [roots] Why not to jump so fast into periapical surgery

This patient presented today with pain to percussion on this left upper molar, no probing depth more than
3 mm all around, root canal therapy was performed one and a half years ago and had never given her any
symptoms until recently, I discussed options with her and convinced her to let me remove the crown and
explore the floor of the pulp chamber rather that doing surgery, then VOILA!, I am not sure how much CBCT
would have helped me here FOR DIAGNOSIS - Jorge Vera
