Subject: [roots] Interesting Case!

Patient was referred to me this morning. Here are the clinical findings, micrographs and radiographs.
I'll post my recommendations to the patient and DDS later. What would you do?

Tooth # 12
80 year old female
No complaint of pain on chewing
Tooth is sensitive to an ice pencil (normal response)
Negative to percussion
Class 1.5 mobility
No pocketing - probing was 2mm or less cicumferentially
No mucosal swelling....palatally or buccally
Negative to palpation
Patient has no spontaneous pain
Radiographs from last year reveal no fracture
Positive pulp test....WNL

What would you do for this patient?

My time spent with this patient took a lot longer than Scott Perkins spends on a molar root canal.

clap, clap, clap... thank you for showing this case... it doesn't get much better than president of AAE posting cases ! - ahmad
