Endodontic Contest – from Retrograde to Orthograde RCT – contest #5

Endodontic Contest – from Retrograde to Orthograde RCT – contest #5

Author: Zaher Al-Taqi

The “Endodontic Contest – from Retrograde to Orthograde RCT” is over!

JUDGE: Dr. Marga Ree has chosen the best case!

I have reviewed all cases, and I selected Dr. Zaher Al-Taqi as the winner. My criteria for selecting the best case were:

1. Use of isolation

2. Conservative access opening

3. Conservative shaping of root canals

4. Complexity of case

5. Technical skills

6. Restorative follow-up treatment

7. Overall treatment plan

8. Documentation

So: congratulations to Zaher Al-Taqi, he did a great job on a very tough case: 2 separated instruments, one bypassed, one removed. It is often very tempting to sacrifice sound tooth structure to remove a fractured file, but he decided to bypass is, which was a very good decision in this situation. In addition, he addressed the perforation properly, and took care of a decent build-up.


8 weeks: September 27 – November 20
