Subject: [roots] triple retreatment

This is nothing unusual for most of you, but it is a good example 
of quick and cheap treatment. This patient, 45yo woman was referred 
from prosthodontist to retreat upper second premolar and
2 molars (third molar will be extracted). No serious complaints 
only discomfort after chewing, when food comes into interdental spaces.

Removed these ugly fillings and posts. Canals earlier treated with 
resorcine-formaline-ZnOeugenol mix. Nice anatomy, both molars 4 canals, 
premolar-2 canals. Irrigation: NaOCl, CXD, citric acid, shaping
with protaper and race instruments(finished with 25.06 in small , 
and 35.06 in wide canals). Ca(OH)2 for 2 weeks in each. Filled with 
warm gutta percha(Shilder's technique). Planning retreatment of first 
premolar - Kristina
