Photographs of June 8, 2004

  Periodontal tissue is healthy around teeth 11 – 22.
  There has been some minor recession on the lingual of
  tooth 21 following the removal of the bony sequestrum.
  There is no periodontal pocketing and the probing depth
  is 3 mm. with a firm soft tissue attachment.
         Issues & Concerns
• Need to monitor the vitality of tooth # 11
  and # 22. May need endodontic treatment
  in the future.
• No symptoms of pain on hot, cold or
  percussion on teeth 11 or 22.
• Need to monitor the teeth for any signs of
  resorption or ankylosis. If this were to
  occur then consider extraction and implant
