Hi, every one. This patient is 88 yrs old male, medically compromised and he is on Clopidogrel from long time. Last month fractured his old bridge, was not in a position to go for complete treatment because of medical issues. His physician requested me for a conservative treatment plan.
I submerged the root of rt. lateral and at present given a temporary bridge with a cantilever on tooth #7. Post op x - ray revealed the extrusion of cement in to the healing sulcus space, so removed the bridge immediately and used plumbers tape to avoid extrusion of cement, its a tape which i regularly use for composite work. In my office this simple tape plays a big role in various dental procedures.
