Subject: [roots] Re-implantation

Pre-op is from last summer, multi-visit re-tx completed and patient was doing
fine until recently when symptoms returned.  This morning, I extracted,
removed  the cystic tissue, and re-implanted the tooth.  I'm not optimistic,
but hopefully it will heal.  -   Mark Dreyer

Mark,  Did you do any root end preparation or fillings?
It looks a little different than the pre-op.- Randy Hedrick

Randy, I wacked off the root ends, and used the ultra-sonics a bit in the isthmuses.
It looked pretty clean. (of course right?  LOL)  I didn't see a need to place
a retrofill such as MTA.  My local endodontist/surgeon/guru has seen this case
and didn't think it was a good candidate for surgery. In fact he recommended
the re-implantation here. - Mark

Mark, Nice case here... How did you exactly extract that one so carefully?
Multi-rooted teeth are cumbersome in that sense... Could you please write more
on the rationale for this sort of treatment and prognosis...Dmitri
