Subject: [roots] silver point removal
Sometimes silver point removal can be extremely tough and
time consuming, but sometimes it's a piece of cake.
This one was easy, I removed all silver points with
chloroform, H-files and a hemostat. The most time consuming
part was achieving patency in the distal root. For those of
you who are thinking of buying a micro-etcher, I added
2 pictures of the pulp floor, first one shows the floor
after cleaning with alcohol and a micro-brush, but without
sandblasting, second one is after sandblasting - Marga
Perfect! Which sandblaster do you use? - RafaŽl
an old x ray developement box will do the job too - sergio
No Sergio ,because the Danville cab has a suction motor at
the back. - Paul NOYER
Marga, I also use chloroform and I buy it at the pharmacy.
But I was yesterday at the pharmacy because my bottle
chloroform is almost empty. and the pharmacist told me that
all pharmacist in Europe are not allowed any more to trade
I donít know of you already know this, now it think about it,
I can check Monday it at the dental depot - Rob
Which Sandblaster do folks suggest, and Marga.....exceptional
as usual. Must be boring to be that good ALL THE TIME!! Grin
Glenn, The reason why I post only once in a blue moon, is that
I am only that good once in a blue moon......:-))
I use the Danville micro-etcher, with 50 micron al oxide particles.
In addition, I have got a dust cabinet, very handy when cleaning
crowns, posts, temporaries, etc. - Marga
Marga, posting once in a blue moon just builds your reputation.
You always pick interesting cases - Joey D
