Oral Dental Lesion: Case Study

endodontist plan for patient with tooth resorption

Endodontic Evaluation & Treatment Plan

Pre- and Post- Operative CBCTs were made to evaluate the extent, location, and fill of the resorptive defect.

Prior to root canal instrumentation, the resorptive tissue was removed.

4 canals were then obturated with gutta-percha using NeoSealer Flo (an MTA bioceramic.)

The access and resorptive defect were restored with REGEN bond and liner to promote osseous and dentinal reformation.

Full coverage restoration for the best long-term prognosis. Ideally, the full coverage restoration would be radiolucent so we can continue to monitor the tooth at future recalls ensuring the absence of resorption.

Continue to monitor this tooth at 3-month recalls for the first year. The patient has been placed on a 3-month recall at the endodontic office.
