What causes internal resorption in one tooth?
IOPA xrays, CBCT , Root canal treatment .
Hello XXXXXXX ,
Thanks for consulting Healthcare magic .
This is Dr. Priyanka Tiwari answering your query .
Read your query and understand your concern. As your dentist has said you have internal resorption in one tooth, see what happened is internal resorption occurs as a result of trauma or caries related inflammation of pulp .
2-As you are asking about xray, yes, internal resorption can be seen in normal intra oral periapical radiograph or CBCT (cone beam computed tomography ) that is 3 dimensional view also gives information about size , location and shape of lesion formed at apex of root.
3 - Tooth extraction is not necessary unless tooth has grade 3 mobility or more amount of bone loss (vertical and horizontal bone loss) . Treatment for internal resorption can be done is endodontic treatment that is root canal treatment .
4 - No it will not affect the other tooth unless lesion is large and other tooth is affected from trauma or caries .
For this I will suggest you to consult oral surgeon, go for clinical examination and treatment endodontic procedure if possible .
Hope I have answered your query .
If you have further query I will be happy to help.
