A- tooth number 14, mobile and inflamed but still vital. B- 6 months after treatment. Inflammation starts to heal and there is no mobility. There is a great possibility this patient would have this tooth for many more years.
He showed up today and the area has now zero mobility. The tissue has not receded and he has forgotten that there was ever a problem. My sense is that the area will continue to heal over the next 6 months but also begs the questions to our approach for future implant placement.. perhaps we can look at failing teeth as a better , more cost effective “graft” than something out of a bottle? If indeed, we get some osteogenic remodeling, even if the tooth ultimately had to be removed.. wouldn’t that give us and the patient a better implant site? One with true bone for the implant to be placed into? And on the odd chance that it heals.. then we have solved the problem therapeutically? I'm always open to thoughts.. but I think its time we start looking at the body’s own potential to help us get to where we need to go..
And of course there are many successful treatments that we have documentation for years.
