Follow ups make sense (by Ilya Mer)

Русская версия

This patient suffered from permanent pain and swelling on this front upper teeth.

RCT was done on all for incisors several years ago and apicoectomy was performed on #21 (9), but it still hurt him, mucosa looks inflammatory and scary after the surgery
So infected looked gutta-percha being removed from RC.
A piece of cotton wood was removed from periapical tissues of #21. This staff always absorbs the microorganisms and prevents the healing . The was no chance for bone reparation because macrophages couldn't destroy cellulose.
Cleaning and shaping steps
Final obturation was done at the same appointment
6 month recall just before prosthetic work has been completed, no symptoms, percussion was painless, radiological healing took place
