This is a case, which shows me, where I am living!
Referral asked for treatment of 36 which has been making problems since
"obturation" 1,5 years ago. When I saw the Pt. the first time, 37 was
very sensitive to percussion With the air-water-syringe, the existing
gold-onlay could be removed within 1 second!!
A lot of debris in the pulp chamber. After irrigation I placed CaOH2 and
IRM on top of it. On the x-ray there has been a nice gift from previous
treatment left behind. Pt. did not know about SS-Root-enforcement!!
I called the referral to tell her about my findings and she got upset.
The "order" has been treating 36 and 37 is not the issue! I told her
that as long as Pt. sits on my chair with a hurting tooth,
I treat the Pt. my way.
Although we had that discussion pt. came for retreatment!!
Merging mesial canals and a resorption on the distal, which I could see
through the scope. I could see the oblique shape of the foramen.
2. visit obturation. Mesials with GP and AH26, MTA on the distal, because
I was afraid of overextend "some" GP. Made a Conefit-X-ray to "confirm"
my EFL readings, which always showed the position of the mastercone in
the distal. Looks short, but this is due to the oblique resorption.

Nice, Jorg. How large was the POE on that distal canal?
Too large for a master cone I assume - Guy
