Lara. Do the X-rays I sent you show any signs of any

Customer Question
Hi Lara. Do the X-rays...
Hi Lara. Do the X-rays I sent you show any signs of any infection(s) may have reached a root or something else on the right side? Is it just the left side that shows indicators of infection? Thanks.

I am not sure if Lara is available and I see that you have been waiting a long time. I was able to view the X-rays and there is no sign of any infection on the right side.The left side does not show any signs of acute infection at this point but there is decay in the lower molar that is very close to the pulp. We cannot determine actual infection on the X-ray but we can see bone loss from a long standing infection and signs that infection is forthcoming. There are no overt signs of infection anywhere on the X-rays. The right side looks perfectly clear and no signs of decay or infection are visible.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
