Subject: Re: [roots] Sad outcome after trauma

Replanting teeth without performing RCT on them first is quite undesirable 
similar to this attempt to "correct" the flop dental implant design by filling 
implant's "holes" with light curing composite. ( done in California and
implant type is "Sargon" ). - Valeri

It was an attempt to fill the "holes" of a molly bolt design implant. 
Colleague tried to fix an impossible to fix problem with such type of implant. 
Why he has chosen to use composite inside the bone and what were his expectations
after doing this is a "secret" to me ?

I would directly remove such an implant, which must not be placed in a human body 
on a first place. Molly bolts are to be used with other materials like wood or 
concrete walls, not in human bone imho. - Valeri
