Subject: [roots] Silver point removal

This was an easy silver point removal. Fit an Appli-Vac 3/4" Bendable Needle Tip
from Vista Dental (they come in 6 different sizes, from 25 gauge to 16 gauge) over
the coronal part of the silver point. You can also use a similar type of needle
from Ultradent. In this case, I needed a 22 gauge tip. Mix a self- cure or
dual- cure composite resin (I used Build-it Bleu from Pentron here), pick up a
tiny bit of the composite in the needle, insert the needle in the canal over the
coronal part of the silver point, light cure in case you use a dual- cure, and most
important of all, wait a couple of minutes, don't fool around with the needle.
Your patience will be rewarded!! Then, remove the needle, I used a hemostat to pull
it out, et voila, the point is yours..:-))

In case it doesn't work, the bleu material is clearly visible and relatively easy
to remove with US - Marga

Great explanation marga, and I do it exactly the same except I’ve always used the a2 shade as that is all I stock. Good idea on the blue. The only thing I would add is don’t wait a couple of minutes, wait a full 4 minutes. That is the chemical cure time for build it. That 4 minutes will seem like an eternity, but as Confucius would say never enough time to do job right, but always enough time to do over. I’ve used the wide diameters (18,16) to get a grip on posts - gary Dear Marga, I would like to answer/(sing) with the words of Tina Turner: You're simply the best! Excellent documentation. Thanks for sharing. - Jörg Schröder Dr. Ree, Did you build the tooth to form with composite prior to initiating the endodontic treatment in this case? If so specifically how did you accomplish the build up and with what materials? Thank you in advance for taking the time to reply - Michael
