Subject: [roots] 21 year surgery recall

Here’s an endo surgery I performed in 1991.  No nonsurgical 
retreatment first,  no microscope, amalgam with Copalite 
varnish.  She’s asymptomatic with no clinical signs of infection.
The sinus looks pretty clear but there’s a small radiolucency.  
Does the alloy inhibit complete osseous regeneration or is it 
low level recurrent disease not significant enough to manifest
clinical symptoms?    I’m not retreating.  Failure/Success?

Should we be impressed with lesions just reduced in size?

Things have definitely changed the last 20 years.  I now have 
413 recalls tabulated in sequential uninterrupted order since 2009, 
well over 200 with CBCT scans and an average recall period of 11.2 years.
