Endo is dead......at least for this tooth......a moment of silence please.....
Documentation by one of my 2nd year residents. Fred
Does the crack go through the furcation? I cant see that it does - Joey D
The cracks were "chased" and pretty far apically.....so it's outta here
probings? probing again with anesthesia at the exact location of the
crack after it has been accessed?
I find I often can sink into an isolated deep probing defect easier once
I know exactly where to look and the patient is anesthesized. Another way
of saying I may miss them with routine pre-operative probing ;-)
I agree, and we do just that. This case did have probings along the crack
lines but we did not take a photo. - Fred
Thanks Fred. I had four cracks this week---for my low volume practice style,
it's a killer - Kendel
These are the ones that I donate free of charge and put a temp in place.
If it is there in five years, I charge and do a permanent crown. Have saved
a few. As Joey D says…no furcation involvement…got a chance. - Guy
