Extraction and clearing
From: Bojidar Kafelov
Subject: Not very clear failure
This is a case that I treated in the beginning of 2011. It was
pretty much herodontics as I and the periodontologist -
dr. Stanislava Shuleva wanted to save the tooth and we
did everything that we can. Periodontal surgery was out of the
question because the patient has a history of cancer and we
didn't want to perform any kind of surgery (as well as the patient).
I ended up extracting the tooth 3 days ago. I wanted to see
if the failure is from endodontic origin or not...Here is what
The clearing technique I learned from Craig Barrington (as you
can see I'm not a great learner - I forgot the alcohol stage
and mixed up a little the protocol). Thank you, Craig, for
sharing the protocol a year ago! Now I'm officially into
clearing teeth! And I love it...- Bojidar
three days is not really long enough to do signifcant damage
but NEVER soak a to be cleared tooth in any kind of foramlin
OR naocl!!!..........it messes up the process...
as well........put that thing back in the acid for another
24 hours............then torch fuel 24 hours again.......ie:
ethyl alcohol is better than everclear.....
i've learned that......
that tooth still has potential to clear.......Craig Barrington
Thank you, Craig, for the feedback! I use Ethanol 95%, but I
completely missed that step. When I remembered I put the tooth
in alcohol for about 6-8 hours and then I returned it to the
methyl salicylate. I'm afraid that if I put the tooth again in
the decalcifier it will change drastically its dimensions.
I'll try to put it back in ethanol for another 24 hours and
then back in the oil. That clearing is done just
for 48-56 hours overall. - Bojidar
