This 25 years old female patient was referred by her orthodontist. The two central incisors were non vital, and presented apical radiolucencies. The patient reported about trauma to the anterior teeth in childhood. Both teeth presented mesial composite restorations with secondary carious lesions.
The right maxillary central incisor (#11) was treated by the Self-adjusting File (3 minutes with NaOCl and 1 minute with EDTA), and was then obturated by lateral compaction.
The left maxillary central incisor (#21) was instrumented by the SAF (see x-ray photos before and after SAF operation), with 3 minutes of NaOCl and 1 minute of EDTA, and was then obturated by lateral compaction.
The 1-year follow-up x-ray shows complete healing of the periapical lesions.
