FAILED RCT
I approached Clove Dental for complaint of tooth ache in 4,5 on the upper right teeth. They suggested RCT in both which has been done repeatedly. Now with and without the caps, the pain has increased. After so much efforts to continuously inform my increasing discomfort to Clove, they have asked me to get the CBCT done of the RCT treated teeth. Is it advisable n clinically necessary? Please let me know the next steps of treatment.

CBCT is a good option as it gives a 3D image becaus all teeth are structurally different.

Diagnostic X-rays films have limitations like it just represents two dimentional picture of a three dimensional object. At times the tooth in question might have a varied anatomy like multiple canals or even clinically nonevident fractures that cannot be detected by conventional x-ray films. So alternate would be to view the tooth in 3rd dimension ie CBCT. I guess this would be more sensible option to plan and provide root canal treatment.
