Subject: [roots] Been a long time since I rock and rolled

Hi there folks:  I am just testing to see if this is working now.

I had a case yesterday for you that I redid.  My associate couldnt get down 
the canal so I managed to do so on the premolar ( she wants a  bridge) with 
ultrasonics and then plugged it with MTA (size 90 file
wouldnt fit ).

I am looking forward to Roots and just checking whether this is showing up 
or not.  I have video of the MTA placement - if kendo tells me how to  get 
it up here I will do it for you fine folks. The images are a screen  capture 
from the IMac but they show the progression from Upper Left Top
row to Lower RIght bottom row.

I broke an ultrasonic tip in the third photo but was easily able to get it out.
You can see the apex in the middle row and the MTA in the canal, cotton pellet 
( wet) and the quick temporary.

Its not perfect as mentioned but something to say that hi folks - and I am 
back -  Glenn van As
