Root Canal Treatment Saves a Perforated Tooth

Posted Jan 12 2010 8:21pm 1 Comment
This root canal was started in July '09. After having difficulty finding the canals, the tooth was referred to our office.

Upon opening the tooth, we found a supraboney perforation on the ML surface.

Canals were located using a operating microscope and the root canal completed.

The ML perforation was repaired using Geristore. (Since this perforation was above the crestal bone, a restorative material that would not wash out must be used. MTA is not the best material in this type of perforation)

A six month recall finds the lesions almost completely healed and the tooth pain free and functional.

have been using lipus since August 17. 06. Dr. Chavez showed me copy of my X-ray explaining my new increased bonedensity. My gums turned from periodontal  to perfect shape. Total absence of tooth pain including increased teargland function. Am using dual lipus modules daily for fifteen minutes every day.  No blind or double blind tests. This has worked on caucasian and may not be of use to people of different genetic background.
