Apexification with MTA plug (by Ilya Mer)

Русская версия

On the x-ray both incisors looked absolutely lost for endo and restorative treatment. Apico of #11 was done 23 years ago and succeeded in spite of all. After the bridge was removed the central incisor looked rather sound and RD has decided to save it.

PreOp X-rays before and after the bridge was removed
Dentin wall cleaning was cleaned through the microscope and checked by X-ray image as well
