Re root canal treatment upper second molar
This is a re-treatment of an upper second molar #27 through an Emax crown . These kinds of treatments are difficult. However, sometimes they can be easy, and other times they can be impossible. The re-treatment of the tooth depends a lot on the work carried out by the previous dentist therefore, I endeavour to be honest with my patients, as sometimes I am not able to fix everything.
In the following case I had to re-treat a tooth filled with Thermafil. Although Thermafil is a great system and works very well in the hands of some endodontist, it doesn’t work for me. I feel that I can’t control the obturation in 3D and the plastic carrier can be easily exposed without guttapercha around.
For that reason, I feel much more comfortable and secure using vertical condensation with System B, it requires maybe more training under the microscope but is worth it and works really well for me.
