The patient was complaining the tooth was aching when she eats sweets and when she bites down on it. I tried to delay this case until I had finished the ortho, however it became a bit sensitive to cold and sweet.
I managed to work around the bracket although it was quite fiddly and tedious. I used pieces of Triodent Matrix cut short to avoid the bracket, and then rolled PFTE and Flowable cured on the matrix to keep everything in place.
Sensitivity to cold and sweet.
