Healing of a tooth beyond salvage

From: Harald Prestegaard Sent: Thursday, January 05, 2006 1:03 PM To: ROOTS Subject: [roots] Healing of a tooth beyond salvage 50 years old female with resorption of the root 12. She did not want to extract the tooth. First time I noticed it was in -86. Already at that time the resorption was big and i did not know what to do with it except extraction. I have X-rays from -77 and -86 but not digital. The last 4 years she has had an abcsess with fistula. January last year I asked her very gentle to let me try to treat it with a "very special material" and she let me do it because the tooth was not so firm aa it has used to be. Abcess and fistula gone after 1 day after filling with MTA. So here is the result after 1 year. The tooth is firm today. - Harald Prestegaard, Norway

HI HARALD , GREAT POST , THAT IS WHY I CALL M.T.A. "MATERIAL THAT ACTS" - Gurpreet Singh Nice. Dr. prestegaard, what did you do or use to prevent apical extrusion of the mta? - Gary I am not using anything. I just keep sure that I am not condensing it longer apicaly than my working length. I do that with paper points. In many cases you get some extrusion as in this case, but that don`t seem to be a problem.- Harald
