The Little Things

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.
