Subject: [roots] healed case
Just did this consult. And it reminded me of what Valeri is keep on
telling here, that we see treatments performed not following the most
common endodontic principles and still they are a success. Look at
tooth 11 , short filled (probably 3 mm) and asymptmatic, no lesion.
While tooth 21, had already an endodontic treatment and an apical
surgery and is symptomatic and failing. So, what is the lesson to be
learned here ? - Roberto
Tooth 11: not infected before tx or was properly disinfected.
Tooth 21: infected--intra-radicular, extra-radicular, root fracture, ???
I suggest reading the paper on Cognitive Dissonance in Endodontics.
But, we need to think like scientists. - Fred
As they say on Euronews - NO COMMENTS from my side :-) One could not
have a better proof than what is seen in Roberto's patient.RX !
Just keep in mind what Charles Wise said about dental implants back in
1970ies. - long before "pseudo science" of "his majesty" Branemark
emerged on horizon.( apposition of bone over Titanium was reported by
orthopaedic surgeons in 1950ies ! ) - Valeri
