Removal of silver points
This patient was referred to me for a re-root canal treatment of an upper left second premolar (15). The tooth was presenting a couple of metal post and a silver point obturation. Within the always difficulty of re-root canal treatments, removal of metal posts and silver points are quite predictable with the proper skills. This tooth was already treated 2 times in the past so preserve as much natural tooth structure was very important. Every time that the tooth is root canal treated or re-treated adds another layer of difficulty for the next treatment making very challenging sometimes to fix what it was done 20 or 30 years ago. My advice is always to find the right specialist with experience to fix this kind of situations to avoid further damage.
The obturation was done using bioceramic sealer and the treatment was completed in one session. The result may vary from patient to patient but it’s very predictable in the vast majority of cases. Let me save your tooth.
Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.
