Subject: [roots] weird anatomy du jour
a peculiar case today,
37 with no clinical symptomatology and MASSIVE CORONAL DECAY - for sure a question if there is a primary resorptive
ldefect with subsequent bacterial penetration leading to this lesion.
Anyhow, coronal restoration with problems regarding keeping canal patency. The rest was business as usual - cleaning,
shaping and filling with a interesting result. - dr. Peter kiefner
Peter, Why would you try to salvage this tooth? Wouldn’t an implant-supported crown have been a better alternative?
- Henry C. Levant
Peter, I agree, you did alot of work but that tooth has alot of decay and in my books would be better served with an
implant supported crown.
I also think that you tried very hard to document the case and shared it with us so I dont want to be overly negative
Thank you for all your hard work.
Let us know with recalls how the tooth is doing in the future - Glenn
Peter, Good effort. in my office this tooth will be deemed non restorable.
if the patient cant afford an implant, i will recommend a partial denture - Sashi Nallapati
