The tale of the blind men and the elephant has a variety of explanations - though some think of it as a metaphor. Have you read John Godfrey Saxe's poem about this? It's a pretty good one too. Anyway, with tooth decay, treatment depends on how bad it may be. For severe tooth decay, a crown or root canal treatment may be needed. But for extreme cases, dentists prefer tooth removal. How about you, doc? How do you handle extreme cases of tooth decay?

Nice connection between the elephant's tale and dental x-rays. Using different angles of the tooth using several radiographs will create a big picture on how a dentist deals with it, like small decays or cracks. Thus, it will help finding the root cause of the tooth's problem.

Technological advances help a lot in making things easier, faster and better. This is one good example. Before, we had to take a lot of tests to see what is really causing the tooth problem. But with the help of 3D X-rays, we can see the panoramic view of the teeth at once. Hence, there is usually no need to undergo more tests to determine the root of the problem.
