  Healed case :tooth # 11:Tooth # 21

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
