Case ENDO 1 – Dr. Andreea Petrovits - Endodontics

Case Description:

The patient was sent by his current dentist for retreatment on tooth 36.

In the previous attempts to remove the root canal filling, the MB root was perforated (shown in the x-ray made by the current dentist – Photo 1). The MB and ML canals could not be accessed completely. Canal D was apparently prepared to the total working length according to the note sent by the general dentist. The x-ray showed the presence of a separated instrument and traces of root canal filling material in the M root. The D canal, although considered already prepared, was presenting a considerable quantity of old filling material. The X-ray also showed enlargement of the periodontal space especially in the interradicular area.
