This re-treatment case of a maxillary 2nd premolar (#15) was due to a lacking root canal treatment, and chronic apical periodontitis.
The main bulk of guttapercha was removed, and the SAF System was operated for 4 minutes with continuous sodium hypochlorite irrigation.
The clinical photo demonstrates the oval shape of the root canal, and the final X-ray shows the penetration of sealer into a lateral canal on the distal side, exactly at the point of the apical lesion.
