Subject: [roots] interesting apical resorption

Large apical resorption  1st appointment : shaping, cleaning
with ultrasonics, and Ca(OH)2 for 1 week
2nd appointment : filling r.c.  with Obtura only!!
- Sotiris Magkos

Hi Sotiris ,Nicely done! How can you control the depth of penetration of the Gp with the obtura only. I suppose that with the external resorption you donít have an apical stop - Paul NOYER Hi Sotiris, Interesting case. Why it seems to me on the final X-ray picture that the gap seen between gutta and canal walls in apical third is quite significant ? Or am I misleaded by the RX picture ? - Valeri There is not good apical stop but the diameter of the resorption was larger than the apical stop, so i tried GP injection and if the result was not good i had to do surgery.. The adaptation at the apical part i think is ok , may be RX picture perform the dark line, it seems to be black line opposite to white filling material... Sotiris
