Note the dark areas at the end of the tooth roots. This is a tooth abscess in the bone
surrounding the roots. Now that the root canals are complete this area should heal over time.
Here you can see a 4 unit dental bridge replacing a missing molar tooth. The third
tooth in this picture has had an apicoectomy denoted by the white round dot at the top. This
tooth had a root canal which did not heal on its own. The endodontist performed an apicoectomy which is a dental
surgery where the root is sealed off from the root end.

With a retreatment, the root canal is re-done. Note in the first picture how faint the root
canal filling is and how it does not go to the root end. In the second picture, the canals are reshaped and filled
and an additional canal was found and treated.
