Lesion associated with resorption defect

Subject: [roots] lesion associated with resorption defect

45 year old woman sought treatment for the sinus tract and 
the yellow appearance of her lower incisor. At first glance, 
I thought of an internal resorption defect perforating the 
root, but after looking at a angled rad, you can see that 
the defect moves to the mesial side, indicating an external 
proces. CaOH application is perfect for visualizing the 
defect (poor mans CBCT....:-)), and because I suspected
a perforation, I filled the apical part with MTA in a next 
session. To save time, I applied a moist cotton pellet on 
top of the MTA, then cavit on top of the pellet, and then 
sodium perborate for internal bleaching.Although I gave her 
a guarded prognosis, it worked out well - Marga
