Botched root canal?
1.5 yrs after a root canal was performed in a upper-left molar, it became painful and the endodontist recommended that it be extracted.
Upon extraction (a 2nd doctor), they exclaimed "Oh my! I've never seen that before." The tooth had pink filling material leaking out all 3 root tips.
I have tried to research this online, and I could not find an over drilling case with multiple perforations.
I wonder how the depth is calculated in standard practice and how all 3 roots could become over drilled like this.
I have not approached the endodontist yet. I wonder what I should even say or ask of him in my case.
Thanks, in advance, for any information you can provide!
