A Successful Endodontic Outcome with Non-Obturated Canals.

Asgary S, Fazlyab M - Iran Endod J (2015)

Bottom Line: This case report represents the outcome of endodontic treatment in an infected mandibular molar with periradicular periodontitis and inherent poor prognosis of root canal treatment due to severe root curvature.The tooth was successfully treated by leaving the mesial root non-obturated, the canal orifices were coronally sealed with calcium enriched mixture cement and a definitive coronal amalgam restoration, was placed at the subsequent visit.

Figure 1: A) Pre-operative periapical radiography; B) Post-operative image; C-D) Short- and long-term (12-month) follow-up images

Mentions: A 27-year old male complaining of a dull pain in his lower left jaw referred to a private dental clinic. On clinical inspection, no swelling was detected on his face. Intra-oral evaluation showed a severely decayed second mandibular molar that was mesially tilted and had an occlusal amalgam filling; the tooth was strategic, as its absence would lead to free-end edentulism. The tooth was tender on palpation but was not responsive to cold and electric pulp testing. On periapical radiography fading of the lamina dura and periradicular bone trabeculation was evident around the apex of the severely curved roots and in the middle area surrounding the mesial root (Figure 1A); periradicular periodontitis subsequent to pulpal necrosis was the final diagnosis.
