Nice job with a difficult situation. What do you think
the long term outlook for this tooth is given the
periodontal defect present on the distal?
I am not sure I would have attempted to save this tooth.
- Fred Lally,
Thanks! After ten years practicing endo I couldnít agree
with you more. An implant is probably of better long term
prognosis in such situations. This case was done 10 years
ago and I am trying to locate the patient for a ten year
recall xray. Last thing I heard is that the patient moved
away from Athens since 2005. Back then it seemed the right
thing to do. I didnít even used MTA back then. Maybe
using MTA as a filling material of the distal root should
be better. Anyway thanks for the comments - Antonis
