Subject: [roots] Bi cuspid
This right lower Ist bi cuspid felt like upper one with
seperate orifice wide apart, seperate POE's.( my first)
I expected some form of bifurcation from the pre op
(apologies for scratches on the X'rays)
Found the lingual canal first and searched close to it
for the second one for a long time.
Found the buccal one in the second visit
GG-1,2,3 for coronal, protaper F2, MAF profile 06-30
Nice work Venkat, but IMO, the patient will be lucky to
keep that tooth more than a couple years, due to poor
restorative prognosis. In my practice, I'd recommend
extraction of such a tooth - Mark
Mark I agree with you.
it was bucal extensive caries leision, unfavourable crown
root ratio and the reffering doctor was informed of poor
prognosis. Patient was 80+ and he decided on RCT rather
than extraction - venkat
Very nice Venkat ..................these two canal lower
bicuspids are not that uncommon and as a rule I always
look for the second canal in the them and have got them
on a few occassions but unfortunately the last two such
cases are absconding after 2 weeks of Ca(OH)2 ..........
...its almost 3 months now.
GG1.............do u use GG1? Don't you feel its a bit
more prone to fracture due to a thin shaft ? - Sachin
