Subject: [roots] Sick upper molar

Finished First upper molar today. Ignore the Second molar.. some other guy did that one.
She came to me because i take her insurance as a preffered provider
(clearly because i am an "inferior" clinician")

Second molar came in exposed... itll need a retreat if not exo.. big sponge of GP in the chamber.

Anyway... my one had 4 canals, and i got a laterl on one of the MB's.

Could push cavit into the orifices i made in the MB's, but will do amalgam nayer core next visit.

Nice work!-----is that second premolar necrotic? - Kendel Oh man.. look at that.. did i miss that!! This molar had a direct pulp cap that failed, and agonising irreversible pulptitis (acute and long lasting sensitivity to cold testing) You know ill have to check out the pre op.. i dont think i was as thorough as i should have been with the pulp testing there... - Oliver Jones hey man, not knocking you at all, it just caught my eye----next time you see the patient you can check it out---I may be all wrong! - Kendel
