Subject: [roots] Guttaperch-Piercing
Pat. has been referred for retreatment of 46 and 47 ('30 and 31 US).
Started with 46 . Distal root showed 2 canals. The DB has been untouched.
After cleaning and widening of the DB and the isthmus between DB and DL,
I was able to move the GP-point to the bukkal side of the canal.
Then I used a ISO 008 handfile to get patent. I then managed to pierce
the GP with a Hedström # 20. After 30 Minutes of trying to remove the GP
I already thought about solvent, and I am still glad I did not use it.
Look at the GP-Point: you can see where it has been out of the root!
Shaped the distal to 10/60 and the mesials to 06/35. Adhesive buildup
using a DT LightPost in the distal canal. Pt. is doing well and is
looking for the one behind ;))) - Jörg Schröder
Jörg: this is a beautiful retreatment case. No matter where in the world
you might be, there is no short cut to quality treatment.
Your cases speak volume for your dedication to excellent treatment.
Great job! - ahmad
Ahmad, I agree. Jorg is posting some beautiful work. Jorg, are you
taking your photos with an intra-oral camera, or do you have a camera
mounted on a scope? - Mark
Hi Mark, thank you. I have a Coolpix 4500 mounted on my Zeiss Pico
(Adapter also by Zeiss) I am using the Carr mirrors for the intraoral
pictures. The picture from the GP-point has been taken with a
Sanyo xacti E6, great for intraoral pictures and very cheap
(170 .- Euro, Amazon) see atthached pictures. 24-26 Zirkonoxid-Bridge,
