Narrow canal is a great challenge to Endodontist, When combined with calcified entrance the difficulty doubled. Preoperative assessment to the periapical radiograph would help in avoiding many errors that could happen if case is underestimated. In this article we’ll describe how we overcome the challenge using the correct technique and the right tools.
Missed Anatomy is one of the main causes of endodontic failure. The untreated root canal space represent a reservoir for bacteria and necrotic tissue that could be responsible for future failures of endodontic treatment. Among maxillary molars MB2 proven to be the most neglected canal during root canal treatment, inability to follow the rules and […]
Root canal shaping is considered a very important steps during endodontic treatment. Research has shown that mechanical instrumentation greatly reduces the number of microorganisms remaining in the root canal system. With respect to canal anatomy a sequence of files should be planned according to case difficulty in order to avoid errors during root canal […]
Endodontic anatomy is unpredictable, that’s why Preoperative radiographic analysis is very important step in managing endodontic challenges. Some important data could be collected through good reading to preoperative radiograph like root length, canals number, estimated narrowness or canal sclerosis. Once case difficulty is assessed, shaping technique and files sequence could be planned for safer canal […]
Obturation and filling to the root canal system is considered the last step of pulp space treatment. Providing a 3D filling to root canal space and adapting intracanal filling material to cleaned surfaces is required for long term success of the treatment to prevent reinfection. Using MTA as an artificial barrier and apical filling material […]
As a continuity to previous article (Mandibular Premolars:Teeth not to underestimate), Today writing about maxillary premolars and challenges which might be faced during locating root canals and possible anatomic variation in such root canal treatment cases. Hence root canals are the main component of the root canal system so exploration and detection of root canals […]
The success of endodontic treatment depends on removing microorganisms from root canal system, three dimensionally sealing and the placement of a good coronal seal to prevent communications between oral cavity and the periradicular tissues (1-4). The operator should be able to assess the endodontic case and know about tooth anatomy and the suspected anatomical variations […]
