In most cases we will have a copy of a recent X-ray provided to us by your dentist. Additional X-rays will most likely be required to properly make a diagnosis. This may include a 3-D scan if your case is especially complex. Please understand that X-rays are the primary means by which endodontists are able to properly evaluate our work. They are an integral part of both the examination and treatment. We will only take those radiographs that are absolutely necessary for proper care and documentation.
