Abstract


Endodontic treatments performed by general practitioners is very common in large clinics and dental offices routine. Often, due to limitations (scientific and technological) and to complex cases, there is the need for an expert opinion. On contrary, theoretical knowledge combined with technology allows the clinicians to solve complex cases without needing for patient’s referral. This successful case report aims to show a challenging case performed by a general practitioner with 2 years and 5 months training, presenting major complexities such as perforations, deviations, fractured instrument, pulp necrosis, and periapical lesion. Endodontic treatment was performed in 3 sessions, with the aid of operating microscope, ultrasound, digital radiographic sensor, and other technological devices that contributed to the case resolution. After completion, two follow-ups were performed (radiographic - 05/2021 - and tomographic - 07/2021), showing a significant lesion regression and repair.
