Labial plate loss: why?

Last Updated August 23, 2017

Saw this 30 year old male, non-smoker patient who presented with a swelling about his UR2/Upper right lateral incisor. The labial wall has been resorbed but mesial, distal and palatal walls are fine. A gutta-perhca cone placed through the labial gingival margin traced pretty much to apex. Tooth is vital. Is this a case for extraction and Ethoss graft [alloplast, Calcium Sulphate and beta-TCP]? Does anyone have an any idea why such bone loss occurred in an otherwise pretty clean oral cavity?
