Subject: [roots] Einstein implant #3 (1st one :-)
from one of my first year residents....Fred
This pt presented for RCT #3 with CC of "my tooth hurts when
I bite down and let go". Upon access, noted an extensive crack
extending from M to D along the floor of the chamber. Tooth
was non-restorable. EXT/graft #3 in August 08. Implant placed
last week. Tried a different type of suturing but didn't like it.
Nice to try something different, but I would do a regular
interrupted suture looking back.
Pt came back 2 days ago for sutures removal. Will do stage
2 in 3 months - Melissa
