Both roots are infected and the crown is held in place with a metal screw. In addition there is decay under the crown.
Root treated molar
Crown and post were removed, successfully root treated three roots and rebuilt tooth.
Decayed lower molar
Tooth is extensively decayed at the back, extending into the nerve space.
Root treated lower molar
Three canals successfully filled with infection eliminated. Tooth was rebuilt.
Tilted lower molar
Lower molar has been extracted, leading to extensive over-eruption and tilting of remaining teeth. This opens up contact points, leading to food packing, decay, irregular bite and loss of further teeth. Always replace missing lower molars as soon as possible.
Infected lower left teeth
This shows a premolar with bone loss and a molar with bone loss (from infection) where someone has previously attempted to root treat it.
The lower left premolar was root filled and turned out to have a very difficult root structure (bifid canal). The infected molar root was also filled to eliminate the infection and a new crown made.
