Sometimes it’s the little things that can make all the difference.
This patient had had a root canal treatment on their upper second molar carried out a little more than a year ago.
Unfortunately the complicated anatomy in the mesiobuccal root, with a canal bifurcation in the apical 1/3, seems to have meant for inadequate cleaning and persisting apical pathology.
The patient had developed associated with the tooth.
Using The GentleWave Procedure I was able to render this complicated system ultra clean allowing for maximal dentin preservation and a thorough obturation of the canal system.
The tooth has been saved and the existing crown preserved.
Endodontists save teeth.
