Anatomical complexities rarely affect predicable treatment success

Patient: 43 year old male with asthma and reported sinus problems (1995)

Chief Complaint: Asymptomatic. (The referring dentist had previously accessed the pulp chamber of tooth #31 because of a history of tooth pain, 1995)

Dental History: Large amalgam restorations placed years ago on tooth #31 (Class V buccocervical and a Class II MO). A temporary filling was placed in the occlusal endodontic access performed a week earlier (1995)

Significant Findings: Slight plaque accumulation and slight gingival inflammation. All other findings were within normal limits including radiographic observations. (1995)
