Multi Form Apex
Case Summary:Difficult though a bridge RCT. Distal canal apex locator reading was 2.5 mm short of actual length on radiograph. Mesial canal readings were reading past the apex. Took a PA to verify length.
Acute abscess with purulent excudate upon accessing pulp chamber. Mild pain. Non-vital. Post op radiograph shows multiple apical foramen. Pleased with Edge Endo products and their capability to seal such canals. MB,ML,D canals. Looks to be a good seal. Very close IA nerve. Careful not to overfill.
Files & Products Used:Used 10-15 hand files, 20-06, 30-04, 30,06, 40-04 EdgeFile X5 rotary to 22 mm. Full strength irrigation, Edge paper points with Edge seal. 30.06 Edge Fill x 3.
Additional X-Rays & Extras:Why would my Morita apex locator give me 2 mm short readings, anyone?
