Not to bypass but to clean (by Ilya Mer)

Русская версия

Symptomatic AP appears 5-6 years after initial RCT, leaking build-up, obturation looks OK, but PAL is existed. Some dentists believe that GP filling retreatment much easier than resorcinol one. This tooth is a good example that idea is wrong. If you want to be disappointed in doing retreatments – do X-rays with nothing. It took me 3.5 hours (2 visits) to remove all (or almost all) GP. The goal of endodontics not to ” bypass”, but clean the canals.

PreOp X-ray
Verification of GP removing
PostOp X-rays
