Subject: [roots] Calcified chamber
Here is another case I finished this week.
Mandibular second molar.
Referral started the case and referred it because he
couldn't find one mesial canal and couldn't negotiate
the other. Patient reported with severe pain.
Pictures are self-explanatory.
I couldn't get the sensor to full depth. had to rely
Patient has very poor general periodontal health.
I've referred her to periodontist - Siju
Thanks Siju for the great pictures of what I see in my general
practice and get hung up on. Had one just yesterday as a matter
of fact, that had a chamber looking just like that - Caraig Harder
Fantastic documentation and work! Looks like you are ready to
take on a REAL calcified case now. LOL Seriously, although your
case isn't that calcified compared to some cases out there, it was
calcified enough to throw you off your game if you don't know what
you are looking for. I'm sure you are well equipped to handle
some of the more brutally calcified cases because of how your
brain catalogues the color cues learned from cases like this
