Subject: Re:[roots] The power of bioceramic ;-)

14 years old girl. Lower left first molar. Pulp necrosis with subperiosteal abcess. Hand files used only.
2.5 % hypo, 17 % EDTA, 3 % hydrogen peroxide used for rinsing.

Canals were filled with bioceramic sealer only.

From: Roman Bakowicz Re:[roots] The power of bioceramic ;-) To: "ROOTS" How you will be fighting against such a great power if you face retretment? That's the usual question asked ;-))). Removal of hardened ceramic, if you have used a "single cone" technique is no harder than removal of hardened Russain red paste. ( you should be familiar with Russian red paste, since I see you practice in Poland ) Not that for over two years of use of bioceramic I needed to make any re-treatment ! But I know this because I need to remove part of it from the canal to allow space for root post relatively frequently. In pulpitis cases usually anything goes, if canal is properly instrumented and cleaned. In cases when periapical lesion is present I usually fill the canal with bioceramic only ! I am not in favour of second / third re-treatment attempts in cases with periapical lesions. May be because I place implants, too ;-) ? But the only case I have not being able, up to now, to achieve success was an incisor with double oblique fracture in which basically bioceramic can do nothing for the leackage through one of the fracture lines ( see attached radiographies ). Where achievement of sealing of the fracture line was possible there are no traces of previous lesion at all. I started clinical use of bioceramic in endo in Dec. 2007 and so far results are excellent. (at least mine are J ) For PA lesions larger than 5 mm I combine apical suregry with re-treatment, whenever patient agrees with such treatment plan and whenever clinical situation allows for such combined treatment. Hope that answers the question.- Valeri Stefanov
