Treatment of a very important tooth. Multidisciplinary approach
During our daily treatments we often face different situations where many disciplines of dentistry intertwine with each other, in some treatments we have the need for secondary treatments.
The patient comes to our clinic with complaints in the lower right jaw, and to resolve this situation we performed a multidisciplinary approach to resolve the problem.
Initially we performed a surgical approach to make distal closure, without this step the endodontic treatment would be impossible!
The lower second molar, a very important tooth because of the bridge had to be endodontically treated well and without any error under any circumstances.
Patient with pain in the lower right jaw.
The second lower right molar with distal deep caries. A very important tooth because of the bridge.
Initial situation of the case
Surgical approach, to isolate the distal part of the tooth
X-ray after surgical approach
Irrigation and activation
View of all canals
Multidisciplinary approaches gives us full control of the various situations we have to deal with in our daily work, on the other hand these types of approaches make us more efficient and safer.
These situations need to be well plannned in advance and have a reasonable chronology.
Multidisciplinary approaches require knowledge and skills of the dentist, as well as cooperation from the patient, and when these conditions are met then success and long-term prognosis will not be missing.
