No oozing should be present
A smooth & tapered preparation of the canal
Healing of the sinus track
If RWE show us a video lecture on when to fill or not fill the root canal, it will be a favored for us.
Thank u for ur Co-operation & the videos that RWE share with us.
To make a long story short, I think you have a very good teacher who cares about improving your success rates. But this strict criteria for success may not be necessary. While you can not go wrong by following your teacher's advice, there's the question of how to we know what we know? Anyway. We don't think your teacher is wrong; but some of the tests such as absence of periapical sensitivity on percussion and absence of foul smell can be questionable. I think this would make a good tutorial. :)
