Subject: [roots] Endo/restorative

Interesting case.  College age gal, hx of trauma.  Accessed previously 
by referring doc.   There was an acute flareup of a chronic peri-radicular 

She became assymptomatic after visit 1.  I was unable to negotiate the 
apical wisp of a root.  

Filled with MTA topped with cavit (a la Herbranson), then bonded post/core.  
I cut back the post a bit and veneered with tetric ceram.  The facial work 
was a little value added thing which I hadn't talked about at the consult 
and surprised her with as a n/c extra thing for her. She was thrilled with 
that little improvement.  I don't do enough cosmetic procedures to 
warrant keeping an array of different shade resins in stock, so the only 
shade of tetric I had didn't blend really great, but it should look better 
as the tooth re-hydrates. Liviu 

I ain't but I was good enough to make this gal happy!  LOL - Mark Dreyer
