Subject: [roots] Retreat #18

A month or go or so I posted the initial films and photos of this case. Virtually all responses were
that this was a lesion of endodontic and not periodontic origin, and to retreat.  Which we did.
To my surprise, this was a very ordinary case, 3 canals only.  Treated in two visits, caoh2 for 2
weeks.  For better or for worse, when I have a retreat and no missed canals, I tend to be very
aggressive, as you can see.  Fill completed today with microstructural replication (hi ya ken!)using
resilon/epiphany.  Gingival lesion has resolved, patient is without complaint and is once again a happy
camper - Gary

Gary, thanks for sharing! I wonder, what different kind of population you have over there in US :-) I have not seen periapical changes in such a short interval (if i get you right, it was only ca 2 weeks). - Dmitri Actually it was closer to 4 wks, but it wasn’t changed at all, and most feel caoh2 needs to be recharged or it runs out of gas - Gary Ahhh....the "look" of bone healing. Nice!! - Fred
