Subject: [roots] Cracked tooth, need help!!!
Today I had a case started easier and finished with difficult decision
- How to treat this tooth - extraction or no? Patient - female - without
any complaints. There isn`t pocket. I chose to re-treat the tooth, because
we`ll put braces and change old inaccurate crown. When I started root canal
re-treatment I found crack - almost invisible. It`s started from distal to
2-3 mm under orifice. The color of canal is brown-black (resourcin-formalin paste)
and i don`t how deep in the canal is the crack. help me to choose how to treat
the tooth - extraction or root canal re-treatment and crack`s sealing, or...?

Hello Dr. Venelinov
As there is no perio probing I would go for complete endo treatment, and
just fill all the distal root with MTA. Then no post on that tooth, just a
composite core and immediate temporization.
