Symptomatic # 8 which has been apically resorped.


Obturation with MTA entirely.

After 3 years, asymptomatic with apical radiolucency entirely resolved.








Comments:
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.
