Subject: [roots] silver point removal

Sometimes silver point removal can be extremely tough and 
time consuming, but sometimes it's a piece of cake.
This one was easy, I removed all silver points with 
chloroform, H-files and a hemostat. The most time consuming 
part was achieving patency in the distal root. For those of 
you who are thinking of buying a micro-etcher, I added 
2 pictures of the pulp floor,  first one shows the floor 
after cleaning with alcohol and a micro-brush, but without 
sandblasting, second one is after sandblasting - Marga

Perfect! Which sandblaster do you use? - RafaŽl an old x ray developement box will do the job too - sergio No Sergio ,because the Danville cab has a suction motor at the back. - Paul NOYER Marga, I also use chloroform and I buy it at the pharmacy. But I was yesterday at the pharmacy because my bottle chloroform is almost empty. and the pharmacist told me that all pharmacist in Europe are not allowed any more to trade chloroform. I donít know of you already know this, now it think about it, I can check Monday it at the dental depot - Rob Which Sandblaster do folks suggest, and Marga.....exceptional as usual. Must be boring to be that good ALL THE TIME!! Grin - glenn Glenn, The reason why I post only once in a blue moon, is that I am only that good once in a blue moon......:-)) I use the Danville micro-etcher, with 50 micron al oxide particles. In addition, I have got a dust cabinet, very handy when cleaning crowns, posts, temporaries, etc. - Marga

Marga, posting once in a blue moon just builds your reputation. You always pick interesting cases - Joey D
