Lateral lesion (by Ilya Mer)

Sinus tract  appeared two years after the crown placement. Tracing with GP cone leaded to middle third area, that could get a clue of big lateral canal. It was found and cleaned with ultrasonic agitation of NaOCl.

After initial shaping and Ca(OH)2 placement the sinus tract healed.
