Premolar has caries approaching pulp, so cud be radiating pain Radiopacity in extraction site,suggestive of root remnants, cud b reasn of pain

It could be pain radiating from the adjacent teeth. Do heat test/cold test on both teeth to confirm diagnosis.

It's phantom pain...educate the patient, prescribe hot saline gargle, mentally educate the patient.

Check out root caries with adjacent premolar.... Plus it has a filling...

1. There seems to be cervical caries in premolar tooth. 2. Suspected root piece. Either take another rvg to confirm or explore clinically.

Do heat test for 5 and 8 if it is negative then cause is in extraction site anesthaise the area and currattege it and give anti biotic

By radiograph it looks like there is a root piece left in d area ...for more confirmation take 1 occlusal radiograph
