This patient was sent to me after biting down too hard on a chicken bone.
His dentist found it difficult to anaesthetise so temporised.
I found 2 hyperaemic distals and a dying mesial canals(2).
The problem is the crack which traverses from distal to mesial,does go 
down both mesial and distal canals but does not cross the pulpal floor.
I think it is a goner but the patient wants to give it a go
All the techniques seen here were made possible by this website and its 
wonderful practitioners,I can honestly say that I have learned more here 
than at university.

1 shows the crack unstained,
2 crack stained with methylene blue,picture
3 with munce canal projectors  so I could build a core to give some support 
  to the cracks ,
4 After removal; of canal projectors  and finally picture
5 with access closed with purple flow.

I would ideally have liked to place a temporary crown immediately 
but ran out of time - Solly
