From: jose sacramento To: ROOTS Sent: Tuesday, April 12, 2005 3:29 AM Subject: [roots] MTA case part I, II and III This is my first case in this forum. Comments are welcome. - Josť Sacramento MTA case part I This patient came to my office with an open tooth 1.2 (7 US) and a big periapical lesion. I did the clean and shaping of the root canal system, put CaOH inside the root, and I said for him to see an endodontist in France where he works.
MTA case part II Three months later he came to my office with pain and an abscess in the palate, without any provisional restoration in the tooth. He havenít gone to finish the treatment as I said to him. He had a cotton pellet inside the root canal, that when I removed began to drain.
MTA case part III After three long visits the root canal was dry, then I decided to do the obturation with MTA (large apical gauge 70) and a week later the backfill with gp. This case was finished in January, but I donít have any x-ray of follow up because he went to France again to work. I hope to have it in the summer... If he brings the tooth...
Thank you Jose for such a well documented case with MTA. How did you stop the MTA so beautifully at the apex. ? - Danny
