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...?
(excuse me for my bad, bad English) - Dr. Rossen Venelinov

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. Keep posting the follow ups please!! - Carlos Heilborn, Paraguay
