Grade 2 Buccal Furcation Treatment #14 with VMIS
Patient was referred for evaluation of tooth #14. Tested normally to percussion, palpation, and thermal stimulation. Advised patient tooth may have a vertical fracture, pt was adamant to try and save his tooth if possible. Videomicroscope used to debride b furcation and explore both b roots for possible fracture, none seen visually. Went ahead and completed perio regeneration protocol...radiculoplasty with hsps and fine diamond football bur after gross debridement, final debridement, etch with EDTA, dry field, apply emdogain, mix emdogain with fdba and in this case I coronally advanced the flap as much as possible. Will see how it heals up. I thought the video was interesting and had a fantastic view of the root concavities and furcation dome.
