Mandibular Right Second Molar (LR7) Root Canal Retreatment – Silver Points

Patient referred for root canal retreatment of LR7 to resolve the chronic apical periodontitis.

The lingual wall had fractured and an ortho band was placed to facilitate isolation and restoration. The silver points were removed and the three canals were chemo-mechanically debrided and dressed with calcium hydroxide. Subsequent obturation was with warm vertical compaction of chloroform customised gutta-percha and sealer. An amalagam core was placed within the band and the patient referred back for provision of a crown.
