Subject: [roots] Einstein Endo--just a molar

From one of my 2nd year residents...

#14 - 28 year old AA female from GPR clinic.
Pulpal Dx: initated treatment, Periradicular: normal.
She was seen for emergency in the GPR clinic and was then referred once MB2 
could not be located. GPR also stated she had a hard time getting into the 
palatal canal.    The x- rays are poor, but the take home message of 
"you can only treat what you can see" is not.   Once I removed the
IRM and cotton pellet two things struck me.

1. the location of the MB2 was a little more Palatal than I usually see 
   (no big deal - because I could see it)
2. the palatal canal look completely untouched.

Finished same day. - Jared

Fred, This is a learning curve with Shick and some patients don't cooperate very well. It can be tough getting good radiographs. Liked to have seen some off angled pre ops. I hope your pointing the finger at them. Joey D, "Although it worked out as a nice case, even though it wasn't squirted" ::))))
