Seems to be an apparent lack of persisting infection - Kendel

Serious healing going on there.  Appears to be a silver point retreat.  Very nice. - gary

Thanks Gary---yep, ag points, but very easy retrievals.  some are not so easy - Kendel

Dramatic healing Kendel! - Randy Hedrick

Thanks Randy, despite my sloppiness ;-)  - Kendel

Nice Kendel.  What's scary is that second looks like a kid.  How old was this patient.  If it is a kid,
it means someone is still using silver points.  That is amazing.  Guy

Thanks Guy, yes I think she's about 13 y.o.   The silver points were done about two years ago.

I see silver point cases in youngsters because Medicaid in Texas does not reimburse well for endo.
So few docs will do medicaid endo.  Evidently there is a doc in downtown San Antonio that likes silver points
and does medicaid endo.  I've seen some of them that look healthy and solid.  Others like this that have huge
volumes of undebrided space.

I do Medicaid endo like this sometimes and retreats are reimbursed very poorly.  I do these for "sport"---
I find them very rewarding.  Hopefully this tooth will last to a point in this patients life where she has
the means to pursue an implant should this fail - Kendel

Kendel, you are the healer. Best regards - Jörg

Jorg, your work is absolutely awesome.
Mine?--I just got enough crap out of this tooth to let it heal-------
Anyone can do what I do by just following a few simple rules, it's really just biology, not skill.
But those cases you post---not everyone can do those---they are just excellent - Kendel

Great case Kendel, fantastic healing ! - Marga
