Subject: [roots] "retreatment" and internal bleaching
This patient was referred for rct in 12 and 11.
11 was treated with a so-called single cone technique....:-),
and 12 tested vital. So we ended up with one endo less...:-)
Upon access, 11 smelled like an dirty ditch. The foramen was a
size # 70, so I was a bit in doubt as to whether or not using MTA.
I decided to go resilon. Bleaching with sodium perborate,
barrier of GIC, and composite BU.
BTW, I love the new fat Dovgans (2,2), they are ideal for e.g.
application of sodium perborate. - Marga
Marga, Single cone - really appropriate for this "skinny" canal....
We discussed this before, as I can see your are well above the
CEJ so the barrier doesn't seem to have any clinical
reason - right ? Superb result and endo ! How do you place
Sodium Perborate ? - Thomas
Thomas, Yes, we have discussed this before, and I use a GIC
barrier to protect the root canal filling from the sodium
perborate, no other reason. I place the material with a
disposable Dovgan carrier,
These are cheap carriers, there not meant to be discarded
after a single use, but they will last at least 20 times or
more. At least, that's my experience. I find it another great
product from Joey. On the site, you'll see they come in
3 sizes, but there is a fatter one, the 2,2, which is very
nice for applying sodium perborate. Apply, and condense it
with pluggers and fat paper points. - Marga
