Fragment retrieval and 8 month follow up (by Ilya Mer)

Русская версия

The patient was sent to re-endo of several teeth before a new prosthetic reconstruction

The tooth #46 (30) with no symptoms but a large LEO on mesial root and probably fractured instrument in the apical third
The fragment was easily taken out with ultrasonic tip because of very short roots (approx. 15mm)
Root canal system was cleaned and disinfected with irrigation solution but not dressed with calcium hydroxide because the patient came from rural area and I had to finish this case in one visit
Final obturation
eight month recall
