This tooth was extracted on 31 July 2012 in my Palm Harbor dentist office. The patient had been in pain for more than two weeks. The pre-extraction x-ray showed an abscess on the tooth’s mesio-buccal root. In these extreme post extraction pictures I have labeled the roots as well as the large cyst.
(A) points to the disto-buccal root of tooth #3
(B) points to the mesio-buccal root of tooth #3 (note the resorption of this root by the abscess
(C) points to the large palatal root. In the second picture the cyst attached to the palatal roots apex is circled.
