Abstract

The case of a patient having 2 teeth with associated apical radiolucencies that responded to conventional pulp tests is presented. A decision was made to reexamine the patient at intervals rather than perform root canal treatment. During a recall visit, use of an available laser Doppler flowmeter allowed detection of blood flow within the affected teeth. A diagnosis of periapical cemental dysplasia (cementoma) was made.
