Subject: [roots] Long 2nd premolar
Pt was told to restore the distal caries on #13.
He forgets, didn't have time, wasn't hurting, got busy........
Carious pulp exposure. started endo, 27mm canals...handfiles and SX protaper
for coronal enlargement.
Alloy/amalgambond buildup.....No crown for this one - Ahmad
Stupid question really from a former disciple of Harold Shavell.who used
to shoe cusps with amalgam.. has anyone had any experience at all with
doing just that with Amalgambond and really detailed anatomic carving and
finishing of the amalgam restoration.just curious.. Kendo
I have seen it done in my older patient population. and those were probably
restored with copalite and not amalgambond..... However, if the cusps are
intact and there is sufficient tooth structure, why cut it down to cover
it with alloy? - Ahmad
PS. I tried to get him in to polish and carve some anatomy in the alloy...
he'll probably call back when the caries in
#15 reach the pulp...)) -
Nice job Ahmad..........as always great attention to detail with the dam
and the documentation. Thanks for sharing - Glenn CLAP CLAP CLAP
