FIXING COMPROMISED CASES | Renovo Endodontic Studio

This 50 y.o. healthy male presents with pain associated with the support tooth of his bridge. We have noted a 6 unit FPD with #5 and #6 used as pier abutments. We have diagnosed a recurrent infection associated with #6 secondary to a misplaced post causing a perforation on the disto-palatal aspect. As all potential options involving removal of the FPD would be very costly to replace, we made the decision to perform surgical repair of the perforated post. Root end preparation and retrofill was also done to seal off all potential communications from the canal system to the extraradicular space. We are looking forward to favorable recall appointments in the future. Yeah….saving teeth, one case at a time. ????
