Three year recall from today. This patient initially came in specifically for selective retreatment of the mesial root. Apparently her sister is a dentist in Europe who practices conservative dentistry and understands that removing excess tooth structure is never a good thing. I like the conservative shapes of the original RCT, but cleaning out the canals is a problem with small shapes, and ultimately this case did not work for her. Today, I believe it is possible to thoroughly clean these shapes with #gentlewave . I retreated this tooth using relatively conservative shapes, a V-Taper 30, just big enough to #endovac. Excellent healing is seen at the #endodonticrecall . No unnecessary harm done to the distal, specifically at the patients request. .
