Another Abscess Healed - At Least for Now!

Posted Oct 28 2008 4:00pm
This patient presented for treatment on #19. Tooth was diagnosed as necrotic with symptomatic apical periodontitis. Endodontic therapy recommended.


RCT completed. 6 month recall shows complete healing of the apical lesion. My concern is the distal leakage under the bridge. If this bridge is not replaced, the abscess will return. Some would then consider that endodontic failure, when in reality it would be a restorative failure.
