The LL6 mesial-buccal root demonstrates a large root resorption in the cervical third with a wide area of root perforation. There is also another small mesial external resorption.

The LL6 also has periradicular radiolucencies indicating a combined endo-perio lesion. It is most likely unrestorable and has poor prognosis. The inferior dental canal does not contact the LL6 roots.

The LL8 roots have a marked distal dilaceration/apical hooks. The upper border of the inferior dental canal contacts the inferior surface of the LL8 roots.
