Subject: [roots] A routine Re-treatment

Nothing special. just a routine re-treatment of a maxillary first molar.
questions, comments, criticisms are welcome.   - Siju

Really nice work Siju. My only criticism is maybe your camera needs to be white balanced, or are you taking some of those photos through a resin filter on your scope? - Mark Thank you Mark. yes I do have a resin filter but I think most of the photos are the way they are because I still haven't learned how to use my camera properly - Siju Well done, Siju! I love to see the line of clincal pictures. Maybe you should do a individual white balancing with your camera to reduce the influence of the halogen light - Jörg Thank you Jorg. I still have a long way to go before I match your photography skills. I read your post about your camera settings. I'll try and do that when i get some free time to fiddle around with my camera. BTW, where did you get Herbanson's reccomendations? Is it on some website or PDF? - Siju I think I got the info from Winfried Zeppenfeld some years ago. - Jörg It's a beauty Siju. This is a common sight in my experience with retreatments----a very messy chamber with composite and gutta percha and voids all together. When I see this I must conclude that the dentist was working blind----in the sense that they never looked in the chamber to deliver treatment. - Kendel Thank you Kendel, This was done by a local endodontist (can you believe that?) - Siju Nicely handled case Siju. What camera and scope are you using. You can edit out the color of the halogen in PS or another editing program. Cya and great case - Glenn Hi Glenn, Thank you for those kind words. I use a Zeiss PICO These pictures were taken with a Coolpix 4500 Glenn, I don't know if this is a silly Question, but how exactly do you remove the halogen light colour using Photoshop? - Siju Hi Siju, I don't know if it is possible with the Coolpix, but you can try to adjust the 'colour temperature' settings in the white balance menu on your camera. Halogen typically is around 3200°K It helps me for more realistic colours - Maarten. Thanks Maarten, I will try and see if I can adjust my camera settings. - Siju good siju, have you installed beam splitter and camera. - Raghu Hi Siju, Excellent work. I have been a lurker on this list for many years and have been noticing your growth to excellence! - Glenn Mascarenhas very true indeed. superb work, great shapes, and really cool and nice presentations too - viji Dear Dr Siju, Wonderful great work. One small query could this also be done opening made through the crown or should we always remove the crown in retreatment cases - Anantpal If the crown is a good one, then yes, you can do the access through it. In this case, it had leaky margins. - Siju Hi Siju, Beatiful case. I found those .pdf about camera settings in this link - Patrick Baltieri
