Case of the Day

Our case of the day shows off the intricate anatomy of a lower second molar. Proper cleaning and shaping of the canal system involves removing all of the soft tissue inside the tooth. This is critical to long term endodontic success and is visualized here in that the canal systems can be seen joining together.

Case of the Day

Case of the Humpday. We corrected this patient’s infection around his upper central incisor by performing periradicular surgery. Sectioning the end of the root, cleaning the root canal internally by gaining access from the end rather than the top can be performed. We plug the end of the root and pack bone around the tooth before closing the incision. If you scallop the incision, the heeling blends in with the contour of the gingiva camouflaging the incision line
