Labial resorption defect

Subject: [roots] Today's Case

I had a consult day today and one working patient.

This woman came in with this labial resorption defect mapped out on the CBCT. 
I initially recommended extraction/implant because of lousy remaining PCD, but 
after considering my imagination and 75%  Survival + Failure rate on my 
statistically insufficient sample of retrospective amateurishly compiled recall 
cases, I decided to perform endo through the labial resorption defect without 
making a lingual access (sheepishly I admit it would have destroyed all PCD!) 
and then repaired the resorption defect with Geristore and cervically bonded Filtek.
At the end I asked the patient if she was worried that my BF01 was grossly deficient.  
She told me that it was nothing that a little antiperspirant wouldn’t remedy. -  Terry
