Subject: [roots] 3 canal lower premolar
seems that three rooted premolars really can be found
in daily practice... here two other 3-rooted
lower premolars from Stuttgart in Germany.
Root canal preparation with hand instruments and
Mtwo rotary instruments, root canal filling - vertical
condensation.- Peter Kiefner
Very nice work Peter! - Camil Ianes
Peter, very good, thanks for the reminder to look for the
extra canals - Danny O'Keefe
Nice work, Peter. These are the lower bi's that I call a
shot in the dark and would restore with maybe one fiber post
and a nice direct composite. I have been amazed at how long
these things last. - Guy
Beautiful work endodontically Peter. What do you think
the longevity of the tooth is given it's restorative status,
how would you restore it to ensure internal anchorage of the
core structure and what is it's long term function...........
anchorage for an RPD, stand alone........et
al..........we cannot as a discipline operate with blinders
and in a closed system..........My .02 cents. - Ken Serota
The premolars shown were treated about two years ago, both
referred from colleagues in Stuttgart. In the first case,
as the referring colleague informed me, fixed prosthodontics
still works (despite the long clinical crown, etc), the second
case was treated by the referring dentist with a crown.
Of course, when such PA-loss is present, long term success is
influenced by "non-endodontic"-parameters, but in this case
seems that all worked for the pacient (and his endodontist).
Best regards from Stuttgart - Peter
