When did you first discover the lesion? It looked like exfoliating dead bone. On x-ray, the back molar looked like it has a temporary filling on top after the root canal. Were you recently anesthetized in that area? It could be the dentist used a strong anesthetic and the area could not tolerate it (4% Articane anesthetic).

Thank you for your reply.

I did have localized swelling in that region 2 weeks prior.

During the initial examination it the was noted that i exhibited fairly significant bruxism resulting in a thickened lower jaw bone structure. (Possibly a reason for exfoliation). The foreign body had the consistency of bone, so i believe your correct.

I'm hoping the Root Canal i received was necessary and not an incorrect assumption that a problem tooth was a cause of the discomfort.

Did you remember when you had the root canal on that tooth? I hope you didn't have that temporary filling very long. I hope the tooth did not get re-infected.
