18 month healing (by Ilya Mer)

Русская версия

It was a difficult case of  non surgical retreatment of #24 (12).


– treated with resorcinol formaldehyde technique in the past (~20 years ago)

– attempt for retreatment 3-4 years before

–  2-leg cast post


-moderate  continuous pain during last 2 weeks

I was lucky that RD had removed the crown and cast post as well and I had to fight with only RC.

RC system was cleaned and re-shaped
Obturation after Ca(OH)2 dressing for 2 weeks
Final obturation X-rays
