A 66-year-old male asked:
A molar was pulled 2 years ago. Bone material would not hold in socket since a wall(s) broke. Is a 3D cbct needed to see is sinus augmentation needed?

On site: That's an on site decision your Dentist, Prosthodontist, Periodontist, or Oral Surgeon will have to make after doing a physical examination and reviewing your existing x-rays. Don't ask the Dentist or Specialist to work "blind" if they feel CBCT required to properly diagnose your treatment needs.
