Pulpotomy with resorcinol and perf (by Ilya Mer)

Here is the tooth  with pulpotomy that had been done with resorcinol formaldehyde  about 15 years ago and was free of symptoms till last month . Unfortunately images from first appointment were lost. Having opening the pulp chamber I’ve found out  that opening was very lingual and MB wasn’t exposed at all  but lateral perf to lingual was done.  The white material you see on X-ray on the pulp chamber floor was unknown cement the perf was closed with.  I had a luck that obliteration occurred in few millimeters of mesial canals and I succeeded to negotiate them. The distal was necrotic.  After two   with calcium hydroxide final obturation was done. Perf was closed with composite.
