Broken lentulo removal case (by Ilya Mer)

Русская версия

Here is a tooth with broken lentulo during previous endotreatment. Somehow by the luck came to about WL in both mesials. I succeeded to pull out  one piece of broken lentulo. You see it on photo. But after X-ray more 6-7mm was found. It was retrieved as well. It was rather simple to wash it out after prebending the fragment insight the canal, otherwise it couldn’t have a way to go out. Totally the shaping and cleaning took two appointments but then the disinfection went over big. The sodium hypochlorite exposure time totally was more than 3 hours!

PreOp X-ray
the first one got out but the longer fragment was still insight
Ready to obturation and squirt
PreOp and Post Op
