Subject: [roots] Root fracture #20

Not really endo, but somewhat related.  Patient presented today with 2+
mobility of crown on previous endo with post and core buildup, opposed in
maxilla by full denture.  As you can see in the photos, draining sinus tract
exiting on buccal.  Sinus tract was traced back to radioluscency on mesial
aspect of radiograph.  I gently tapped off the crown, which came out easily
with the post and core contained within.  The source of the problem became
obvious when I was able to mobilize with an explorer the buccal piece of
fractured root seen as a speciment in the photos.  Patient advised tooth was
a goner, extracted the remaining portion of the tooth, scheduled for implant
placement in a few months. - gary
