21 had history of repeated surgery and apicoectomy and still a progressing lesion Treatment Done GP removal done with a braiding technique. Though removing a single cone in an incisor is easy, in this case the risk of pushing the GP out is quite high. CBCT showed resorption (irregular defect by 2mm) After cleaning and […]
#26 I had to put posts in the mesial and the palatal canal. The entire distal was obturated with MTA #27 The usual endo stuff with an amalgam core Looks like this will hold good for a few more years and implants can wait
#27 Partial re-treatment of MB2 canal 1) H/O RCT 5yrs bk 2) Exploratory endodontic access revealed a blob of GP in the area where the MB2 should be 3) Pre-op revealed a BF which I missed and I introduced another rotary file into the orifice and it separated as well 4) Both files retrieved with […]
3yr recall of a cracked #36 with fracture extending into the ML root. When the peri-apex looks clean i sometimes don’t hesitate considering an endo. Of course with an informed consent about the doubtful prognosis. A post was cemented in the involved root for some added re-enforcement.
This is a case I treated 1 year ago. It was a “thru and thru”, so I was really not sure how successful treatment would be. I started with non-surgical endodontics, two visits with CaOH. Pt still returned about 6 weeks later with another buccal swelling. I completed the RCT then and started the decompression […]
Patient reported with pain and swelling in association with #4, Patient was pregnant at the time, treatment was initiated and then long term CaOH2 was placed. MTA truck was downloaded into this blunderbuss anatomy. Vitamin P deficiency ( P*- PCD) – I think I might have contributed to some of it. I had concerns about […]
42 yom. Symptomatic Partially Vital Pulp. No response to cold. Upon access, I observed hyperemic tissue in MB1 and partially vital tissue in the rest of the canals. 2-1-2 MB root system. 1 visit. Asymptomatic and functional at the follow-up visit.
Patient presented with a sinus tract -buccal of tooth # 8 History of initial root canal 36 years prior and PA surgery with MTA fill and without retreatment by an endodontist 5 years prior. Orthograde Retreatment – removing the hardware: pre-fab metal post, gp, MTA and software – cotton fibers, Placed white MTA apical plug […]
One doesn’t know if the canal wall contains “new” organisms subsequent to the fracture or “old” organisms never removed. My guess? Old organisms.
Again…a sampling fromn the cemental root surface. The Endodontic Triad people just can’t seem to figure this one out. Perhaps “They’re not interested in these cases”……where have we heard THAT before? gbc
