Case 54 Retreatment Very Common, Mesial Root Not Cleaned

Pre Op #19
Symptomatic with swelling over mesial buccal root.

Final Film #19

At First appointment mesial canals cleaned thoroughly, at second appointment all canals were obturated down to radio graphic apex.

Post Op  21 Months #19

Symptoms gone and apex area of mesial root completely filled in with bone.

Comment: Mesial canals of lower molars are very commonly not cleaned well enough to the radio graphic apex. When retreatment done the canals in the mesial root are cleaned thoroughly down to the radio graphic apex.
