Tri me a river, three for two, on the stump – do you sense burnout

This is for comment – please – if it doesn’t elicit it, I’m turning in my blogosphere union card and throwing away my iPHONE 4GS and going back to tin cups and string…..case from lad o’er the pond

Perio-Pros patient referred by a good friend of mine.
Upper rigth second molar needed endodontic revision before full-scale rehab
is taken place.
Referral accessed the tooth, saw a mess and sent the case over to me.
MB root had missed canal, perforation and all in all was not
“good”…
Decided to retreat P and DB canals and amputate MB root.
Done.
Further plan is to remove old restorative from molar and assess if endo
needed (then the patient is coming back to me again 🙂 ,,).
When dust settles down, the final pros will be bridge-like reconstruston;
second molar will be splinted to first molar to create double abutment.
Don’t do these often. Always a fun to do…
Always a surprise to follow up :-))
