This patient was seen by an endodontist to retreat a root canal on the lower right first molar. After the evaluation a root fracture was diagnosed which required extraction of the existing tooth. We performed the tooth extraction, socket debridement and disinfection. No bone graft or membrane was required to achieve ideal healing and bone regeneration. After 4 months of healing the implant surgery was performed.
About a year and a half later, the patient was referred back because of a similar situation with the next tooth over, the lower right second premolar. As the case progresses updates will be posted.
