Subject: [roots] Last five cases in a row
As previously stated, these cases were all done with bent 10-25 ss k-files,
exploration to length using M-4 handpiece where appropriate, Protaper flaring,
Lightspeed apical prep. Irrigated with NaOCl/EtOH and Liquid EDTA and packed
with calcium hydroxide/Chlorhexidine.
Then re-cleaned and irrigated with NaOCl/EtOH, Smear Clear, and Chlorhexidine.
Obturated with Resilon Simplifill and Epiphany sealer, and backfilled with
pacmac/resilon cone and Epiphany sealer.
Do you think we need to do a final irrigation with Chlorhexidine on vital cases?
Or on the first appointment with either vital or non-vital cases? - DanS
I like them all Danimal but I think the 4th one looks a little short on both
canals. I will say this that you get better deep shape than most with LS and
I like the puffs......dont know if Fred will!!
Very well done..........Glenn
Nice work as always, Dan
I've wondered about CHX in vital cases myself ...... it's probably superfluous.
However, I would have thought that the first appointment in necrotic cases was
THE indication. In fact, my interappointment canal dressings are a combo of 2% CHX
and Ca(OH)2 - Simon
Simon, I mix my Ca(OH)2 with CHX also, but then I do a separate rinse at the
second appointment right before filling. Do you think I should do that rinse
in the first appointment prior to placing my Ca(OH)2/CHX paste? - DanS
Dan, what are we going to do if Resilon turns out to be the junk Terry and
others claim it to be? - Guy Looks pretty good at two years, time will tell
