Subject: [roots] Dycal matrix, scope & MB2's

New referring doctor placed this crown 2 weeks ago. She sent me the pre-op 
and post op, periapicals. Our BW tells the rest of story.

Terry has talked about the dycal matrix for isolating deep bleeding margins.
I use this routinely now, since it is so easy and durable to last the usual 
2 hours it takes me to do anything.
(thanks Terry)

The final x-ray is before adjusting the occlusion off.- ahmad

Hi Ahmad, Very beautiful case! Am I wrong or are u using Obtura for your backfills? Concerning the Dycal,I'd like to give it a try. Would u let me know how u place it? - Amir Nice stuff, Ahmad. I still glue bite material on to teeth and dam with adhesive and then polish it off. This is the way I was taught but with ZOE accelerated with zinc acetate - Guy
