Just showing the amount of troughing and tissue removal to get into this
tiny little MB2 here. I used the EIE2 ball tip for the fine work, and
wasn't in a rush to block myself out :-)
First case in a long time where I have lifted out the entire necrotic
pulp in one piece, sadly missed the photo of that. - Bill Seddon
Nicely documented in pictures bill. I love the progression you showed.
Thanks Gary ,I'm crap at writing these things up, so just take the
photos and let people work-out what went on, I just hope it helps some
people. - Bill
Speaking of crap, I don't yet have photo capabilities on my scope, but
it didn't stop me from trying. one of these days I hope to show the
sequence of peeling this stuff off the floor with proper documentation.
I was pretty aggressive searching for the mb2 since the case was necrotic.
finally found it but the image is useless. - Kendel
sounds like an impacted second premolar. any scope for an ortho guy?
if you do not have capabilities,
Kendel, how did yoyu get this picture????!!!! ;-)) - Marcos
I have a 950. just took them without beam splitter or adapter. ;-)
Extremely well done. I see no crap here. - gary
the photography---well, it ain't quite photography----but you know
what I mean.
I've come to enjoy this process (peeling open these closed chambers).
Kind of like endo yoga. Hmmmmmmm. find the
furcal floor, plane, explore, seek, find...... be the calcified chamber..
find the easist orifice first (insert joke here), dark furcal dentin,
amber calcifications, whiter dentin ledges, then orientation just
continues to improve as you work on what you have found, following colors,
contours. Patience is my secret weapon. The irrigants help as well. The
cycle of wetting/drying/planing. I'm sure the more experienced folks can
summarize this better. - Kendel
Patience is correct, I was an hour until I took a file anywhere in this
tooth. Lots of irrigants and planing before, and then the rest is just
so much easier. - Bill
