2 year follow up after strip perforation (by Ilya Mer)

Here is the 2 year follow up after  iatrogenic perforation on mesial root #47. I has started as a regular re-retreatment with under preparated RC system, short filling in both roots. After I’ve got apical patency and was ready to obturation I found myself in strip perf of the  coronal third in the mesial root. The perforation was sealed at the same appointment with MTA Angelus. Final restoration was completed after 3 month recall. 1 and 2 year recall showed no bone lysis in furca and completed healing in periapical area
