This case represents a common situation when presence of post-endodontic disease requires a clinical decision. Should teeth be extracted or endodontic Re-Tx should be prescribed? Evaluation by an endodontist can provide both patients and dentists with clear understanding of available Tx. options and expected outcomes.
In this case a non-surgical microendodontic Re-Tx was accepted by all involved parties as the best way to restore patient’s dental health. During re-treatment, signs of coronal leakage and untreated endodontic anatomy were found and addressed. One year follow up confirmed normal healing and function.
Welcome! Thank you for stopping by our North Shore / Brookline Endodontics blog!
As technology advances, the distribution of information is faster than ever. Some people are at ease with this trend of digital transition; whereas others may be unfamiliar with this change. Although we won’t be “facebook”ing and “twitter”ing any time soon, here are 2 main reasons why a blog could be useful to our dental community:
1. Staying in touch: Our blog will keep you posted with what’s new at our practice. Since we have multiple locations, we will be using this blog as a channel to post our future newsletters, photos from recent events, and any news with our doctors and staff Similarly, you can also leave a response to let us know that you stopped by our website.
2. Case presentation & discussion forum: Since this is under the “Referring Doctors” tab and most people who visit us here are probably dentally inclined, what better venue for us to share some interesting cases? We will post some dental pictures / radiographs (HIPPA compliant, of course), and showcase interesting or challenging cases that we encounter. If you have an interesting case that you’d like to share, we will love to hear from you as well! Certainly, if there are some specific dental or endodontic topics you are interested to discuss or hear about, please feel free to suggest them by dropping us a note.
Our blog will be periodically updated and an email will be sent to you once a blog has been posted.
I hope that you will join us in our transition to the blog world! We look forward to your comments
Brian P. Chuang, DMD, MSD
