Complication in Endo, Tooth #21 (9) – Lateral Root

The patient is a healthy, 44-year-old female. A small inflammation, half the length of the root, was discovered in the root of tooth #21 (9), after she felt strong pains in the area of the tooth. Some occasional pain and discomfort had happened for a few months before the consultation, as the fistula grew. A revision was made in the area of tooth #21 (9) and a lateral root canal was performed. The canal was prepared with ultrasound tips and filled 2 mm deep with MTA. Inflammatory lesions enucleation was prepared with histopathology examinations that confirmed the lesion as a radicular cyst. The defect was filled with 1 cc Bond Apatite®.

6 months follow up images show good remodeling of the bone, and healing was observed. The patient was able to avoid extraction.
