at the root apex
Radiographic view revealed that there was diminution of the periapical radiolucency
Two months after the first examination, all radiographs were evaluated again to determine intra-examiner agreement with regard to the detection of periapical radiolucency

involving both the maxillary left and right central incisors
Radiographic examination was carried out by taking periapical radiograph with paralleling technique to assess status of previous root canal treatment and extent and size of periapical radiolucency
On intraoral examination, root tip of tooth #11 was visible on its labial aspect and radiographic examination revealed an immature root-end in tooth #11 &21 with association of periapical radiolucency
A total of 100 patients with inter - radicular and periapical radiolucency
on periapical radiograph of primary molars were included in this study.
Intraoral periapical radiographic evaluation revealed the two canals and periapical radiolucency
associated with fused tooth.
Mandibular third molar, teeth with periapical radiolucency
, patients taking antibiotics and analgesics, teeth with established periodontal disease, pregnant patients, immuno-compromised patient and patients with non odontogenic pain were excluded.
A radiograph showed a periapical radiolucency
associated with 41 about 20 mm in diameter.
of tooth was assessed on the radiograph taken at third month.
At 1 year follow-up, there were no pathologic findings in the radiographic view like root resorption, loss of lamina dura, widening of PDL and periapical radiolucency
