Subject: [roots] Retreatment of 3.6 & 3.7
Here is a case I finished last week.
X-rays are terrible, but I hope I will get that fixed within the next weeks.
Critique and comments are always welcome. - RafaŽl
Nicely done, Rafael. Even on terrible X-rays, the endo's look fine!
Which Xray holder do you use, BTW? - Maarten
Thanks Maarten, I use the XCP-DS holders from Rinn. - RafaŽl
PS Maarten, Sometimes I use some cheap holders from Polodent or some brand like that. 'Cause sometimes,
the Rinn holders are too big - RafaŽl
I agree with that, RafaŽl, hence my question. I still haven't found a better alternative - Maarten
I'm a lurker but always love looking at your rads RafaŽl, even the "terrible" ones. I use RVG - it looks like you
used the low radiation settings on tooth 3.6. Presume you did this because she was pregnant? Do you think there
is an accessory canal in the distal root of 3.7 in the middle third or could it just be artefact. Wish i'd bumped
into you in Barcelona - Nik
Thanks Nikhil, I see what you mean in the distal canal. To be honest, I can not rule it out completely that is an
accessory canal. But if it would be one and being that big, I would definitively have gotten some guttapercha in it.
Low radiation settings were indeed used because of the pregnancy - RafaŽl
