Missed MB2 : K files: NaOCL: EDTA

Subject: [roots] A classic!

this is the good old missed MB2, ...and maybe some other stuff :). 
In other words, the classic stuff. Patient was referred for endo on 25. 
My advice: extraction of 25 and retreatment on 26. I did the 26 in 
2 visits, with Ca(OH)2 as an interappointment dressing. There was some 
resorption on the mesiobuccal root. Everything was shaped with protapers, 
and apically I enlarged with K-files. Lots of NaOCl, EDTA final rinse 
and PUI throughout the treatment.

Cold lateral condensation.
Too bad about the somewhat less dense condensation apically in the 
palatal canal :

However, I love to compare the preop and postop, that gives me the 
satisfaction in doing this job :) - RafaŽl

PS. sorry for the quality of the third RX, took a wrong plate.

Definitely satisfying to find MB2!! A PacMac would be really helpful when doing cold lateral to 'warm' things up and create more dense root fillings - Fred Yeah, I guess I should have used them here, especially in the palatal canal. Although I do not use pacmac condensors, but the guttacondensors from maillefer. Never tried the pacmac condensors - RafaŽl
