External perforating root resorption management.
Comments and critics welcome.  -  Chaniotis M. Antonis

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
