Symptomatic mandibular molar, patient can’t chew on that side. Referred to us for endodontic revision.
First appointment intervention steps:
Coronal-radicular access (access through PFM crown, access through coronal build up) taking great care not to perforate the previously weakened pulpal floor, gutta percha removal, locating DB, regaining patency in calcified distal canals to the apex without perforation or deviation, correcting step in apical third of mesiolingual canal, negotiation of mesial canals, CHX 2% irrigation, CHX 2% left in canal system for one minute, drying canals, insertion of calcium hydroxide dressing, provisional obturation (Cavit)
Second appointment intervention steps:
Removal of Ca(OH)2, CHX 2% for one minute, dry canals, cone fit checking and final obturation with Pulp Canal Sealer and Gutta Percha.
