Placing MTA retrofill - MAP system

Subject: Re: [roots] Surgery...

If purely endo, this treatment modality usually works very well (attached a few examples).

When i have a perfectly dry crypt (which I admit is not always the case), I place an MTA retrofill.
I use the MAP system for that and this works perfectly well. If there is just the slightest amount
of moisture, it becomes a MESS. In these instances, I tend to use IRM. I especially like the fact
that due to its consistency (if mixed well), you can condense it and place it more quickly.
Just my two cents...

Why did you choose a combination flap in this case? In fact, I never heard of this combination...
Is there any particular advantage over the pure Ochsenbein-Luebke? Soft tissue healing in your
case is impressive BTW! Thanks for sharing! -  Maarten
