Dear madam, If your RCT has been successfully completed, you will need to undergo sinus excision now. The procedure involves excision of the tract under local anaesthesia. You may contact us for further advice.

It's a good news that the sinus tract is healing but regarding the scar you should consult with a dermatologist.

Hello Mam, It Is a good sign that the sinus tract is healing,meaning the periapical infection/pus/abscess seems to have been eliminated.As far as the scar tissue is concerned you can contact a plastic surgeon/Dermatologist. Regards Dr Sumanmakam

Hello there.  I can understand your concern.  If the scar is developed then im assuming the sinus is closed and gone. For the scar you need to consult a dermatologist in person for further evaluation and management.  He will be able to help you further based on the size and all. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.
