“ the difficuilty here was the curvature & tightness of the mesials so , um used d-finder files in sequence 8,10,12 till 15 in order to get patency “

Endodontic treatment of third molars with varying root-canal morphology and difficult access can be challenging. Nevertheless, modern techniques and devices make third molar endodontics predictable

The root canal morphology of third molars shows an increased likelihood for aberrations, such as dilacerations, C-shaped canals and unpredictable morphological features, that should be identified accurately before commencing endodontic treatment. Intelligent evaluation of clinical and radiographic data makes possible to understand the unpredictable anatomy of these teeth. Magnification and coaxial illumination allow the identification of canal orifices, along with the "Laws" postulated by Krasner and Rankow.
