Subject: Retreat 6 canals, strip perforation
One of the rare cases where 6 canals were treated by an endoodontist in canada in 30 and yet the treatment failed.
There was a strip perf in the MMC as well.
it was a tough case. But patient is 25 and i though i can get it to to heal.
Three visits with two CaOH changes.
MMC obturated with GP apically and MTA coronally
at one year recall, distal lesion is healed. mesial still has some area where the perf was.
perhaps may take another year or so for that to fill.
looking forward to more recalls on this case.
cases like these are a challenge and not necessarily money makers. But these cases are the most satisfying for me
especially, when they are healing ;-)) comments are welcome - Sashi
