Does the radiolucency around molar 19 look concerning?

I’ve been having continued pain after implant failed twice at site 18. I recently had a CBCT and omfs remarked there was a mostly unconcerning radiolucency around molar 19 that I should get checked out to rule it out as the source of pain. Going to my dentist tomorrow to see if I need a referral to endodontist. Does this look concerning? Or any ideas of what it could be?

You can't tell from that type of film. It's not diagnostic for periapical lesions.

Thanks Gordon. I’m (nervously) headed to my dentist today for a different film to see if I need referral to endodontist :/
