Surgical Re-endo (by Ilya Mer)

The initial endo treatment of the central incisor was done more 20 years before and cystectomy two years later. Patient felt discomfort in the area and sinus tract appeared from time to time. She has been suggested to change crown restorations and sent to my office for evaluation of re-endo treatment.
