Subject: Re: [roots] Retreatment/Resorption/Resection

I agree with Ben that this tooth has a bad prognosis. 
The loading is extremely unfavourable (I have seen similar cases in 
which the distal root also fractured after a few months) en it is 
very difficult to maintain proper oral hygiene for the patient 
(caries in the furcation is another possible threat).
What could have been done is a 3-unit bridge with # 46 as a distal
abutment. Attached one of my cases on which
I did a hemisection. This is a 4 year follow-up - Marga
