Retreatment #47 (31) (by Ilya Mer)

Русская версия

RCT looks good and the tooth was calm for 5-6 years till last December, then but pain has spread. It hurt for concussion for several days, and then advanced for continuous pain.

Preop X-rays doesn’t show any inflammation’s signs but we know that only CT can show relevant image.
After the restoration and the post were removed RC were cleaned and re-shaped. I like to make X-rays with “empty” canals without any files or GP. It shows definitely true picture and proves the cleaning. 3 weeks with calcium dressing make the tooth calm down and obturation was done
Mesial system has been sealed with PermaFlo, distal one was ready to post and temporarily filled with calcium hydroxide. IRM as a temporary filling.
