Case 33 MTA obturation

Pre-operative x-ray #8
Immediate Post-operative x-ray #8

Symptomatic # 8 which has been apically resorped.

Obturation with MTA entirely.

4 month check x-ray #8

3 year check x-ray #8
After 4 months, asymptomatic with marked apical healing.

After 3 years, asymptomatic with apical radiolucency entirely resolved.

In my clinical experience with the use of MTA, which I admit is extremely hard to handle, obturation of canals where the root structure has had resorption, results seem to be very positive. I fill the entire canal system with MTA, never using gutta percha.
