SELECTIVE ROOT RETREATMENT REVISITED

SELECTIVE ROOT RETREATMENT REVISITED:

Does it work? Here we present a case with a 45 yo healthy female with seemingly adequate endodontic treamtent but recurrent lesion associated with the mesial root. It may be of siginficance that the crown was recently replaced within a couple of months. We did not see defintive evidence of non-restorable tooth fracture. Therefore, 2 stage selective root retreatment was chosen to minimize “esthetic” damage to the crown. 1 year later, the mesial root lesion appears to have resolved and the patient remains symptom free and happy!
