To be the best diagnostician you can be, you'll want to ensure you are equipped with imaging modalities that can provide a holistic view of anatomy. Our client, Dr. Nivine Y. El-Refai, BDS, DDS, MSD, recently shared a case that highlights the diagnostic advantages that 3D CBCT has to offer. Dr. El-Refai's case summary is italicized below:
CBCT was taken to evaluate the root canal filling in both teeth & locate any untreated canals. Thanks to the CBCT, I was able to determine that the origin of the infection started from #15 and was starting to spread to DB root of #14. #15 had been previously retreated and had poor prognosis. The patient decided to get #15 extracted and observe #14.
