Case #2 - Decay & RCT

Sometimes we find decay when it’s very late, making it difficult to restore as well as treat endodontically.

We try to simplify the procedure for patient and restoring dentist by managing the decay and RCT all at once.

Our case involves a 53 year old male with deep decay as well as sensitivity to hot/cold, pain on biting. 

Diagnosis: Symptomatic irreversible pulpits.

Treatment: Gold onlay removed, DO decay removal, with Fuji 9, RCT and remaining build-up with Paracore.

The tooth can now be crowned with a deep margin on distal (Equigingival).
