his for a moment, then answer the question: Shall we continueto allow people to lay themselves liable to diseases like this, or shall we do less and better canal work ? Case: One of arthritis, neuritis, malnutrition. Man Hnd%rsson.C had not been able t0 work for weeks> Referred toradiodontist by physician. Radiographic examina-tion revealed Hento-alveolar abscesses and much loss of osseous tissue, CANAL SURGERY AND ORAL INFECTION 457 due to pyorrhea. The affected teeth were extracted. The patients con-dition improved promptly and continued to improve for several weeks.An upper anterior bridge was made, using the two cuspids for abutments.The Thursday hefore the Monday when the patient had arranged to go towork again, he suffered a relapse and developed pain in the region ofone of iln. abutment cuspids. His physician again sent him to the radio-dontist. A radiograph was made of the tooth causing pain. It showedthe canal tilling reaching only about two-thirds the distance to the apex

The periapical tissues were disinfected by pumping a four percent solution tincture of iodin in water through the root. Again the mansgeneral physical condition began to improve, and continued to improvewhile the canal work in his mouth was done over again, this time checkingthe work with radiographs. From the foregoing it will be seen that the time is already here whencity dentists, at least (when this condition of affairs will prevail in thesmaller town I do not attempt to say) must see to it that they fill canals.A man may practice septic canal work and not be caught at it, but if heplaces a mechanically imperfect canal filling in a tooth any one who looksat a radiograph of it can see his failure. 458 APPENDIX In the case just referred to the patient had paid seventy-five dollarsfor the bridge.
