What does the CBCT scan report indicate?
RCT, extraction, implants
Thanks for your query, I have gone through your query.
As far as the calcified roots and external root resorption is concerned, The calcification can occur secondary to age. The external resorption can occur secondary to any infection in the root tip.
If the canal is completely calcified, then we cant do root canal treatment. If it is partially calcified, then we can try doing root canal treatment. So consult a good endodontist and take an opinion. Regarding external resorption, the cause has to be treated, means, if there is infection in the root tip, that has to be treated.
If the root canal treatment is not possible, then you can leave it like that without root canal treatment.
The chances of a calcified tooth getting infected is very less. If it gets infected, then get it removed and go for implants. Nothing to get scared to go for implants, it is simple procedure than Root canal treatment.
To avoid the other teeth from coming down the opposing teeth should be replaced(if it is missing), so that the other teeth will not come down or supraerupt.
I hope my answer will help you, take care.
If any queries are there, reply me back.
Thanks for your reply.
As far the calcified root canals and external resorption is concerned, The tooth will be brittle and it can break any time. The tooth staying for long time is questionable and the prognosis is poor. I advise you to get the tooth removed and replace it with a implant or a bridge. We cannot predict when it gets infected and result in pain and swelling. Considering your age and the condition of the tooth, its better to go for extraction. It is not difficult to remove the tooth, nothing to worry.
So plan for extraction and implants by consulting an implantologist or a oral maxillofacial surgeon.
I hope i have answered your query. If any queries are there, reply me back.
implant, images of CBCT,
Thanks for your reply.
The Crown which is present over the tooth will be waste if it is not root canal treated and when it has external resorption. Please upload the images of the CBCT so that I can clearly tell you what treatment you need exactly.
You can go for implant in the presence of cardiac problem if you have sufficient bone support. Even in the front teeth region also you can go for implants or bridge. If we replace the teeth with good shade, the replaced teeth can't be recognized.
I hope I have answered your query.
