Retreatment of teeth with a complex root system anatomy #1

Modern endodontic treatment is based on optimal cleaning,disinfection and high-quiality obturation of the root canal system.Anatomy is considered as a key factor in the healing process.That is why a clinician have to be aware of all normal,possible and abnormal variations in the teeth anatomy for achieving a maximum clinical success.In the article presents clinical example that demonstrate the complexity of endodontic retreatment of the maxillary left premolar

Dental Trauma: Forever classic, Never boring

A 23 years old, female patient, was referred to my practice for an endodontic treatment on tooth 11. Patient complained of pain above the root and was concerned of the discoloration. Patient reported  previous trauma (15 years ago) and an attempted endodontic treatment (5 years ago).

A story of a dilacerated premolar

Premolars are the most versatile teeth in regards of anatomy. One of the most challenging anatomical variations we have to face is dilaceration. Abrupt curvatures complicate the RCT especially when we have more than one.

Mysterious pathology, fascinating anatomy & healing- a case of NSRCT of tooth 44 

A periapical pathology, could be a result of caries, trauma, periodontally compromised oral cavity or even a thermal and chemical insult to the tooth. Effective cleaning, shaping and disinfection is the key to a successful endodontic treatment. A deep understanding of the anatomy of a root canal system, is of high value while performing a non-surgical root canal treatment. We often come across mandibular premolars with aberrant root canal anatomies. They often present with multiple canals, splits and accessory canals.
This article describes a case of NSRCT of a mandibular premolar with 1-2 configuration and it presented with a big peri-apical radiolucency.

Management of Type II dens invaginatus

Dens invaginatus (DI) is one of the rare malformations of teeth which results from an infolding of the dental papilla during the development of teeth. This defect gives rise to a possible communication between the pulp and oral environment, thereby increasing the susceptibility to caries, pulpitis, and pulp necrosis.

Zoning Technique in Endodontics

The Zoning Technique is an innovative approach in endodontics that aims to optimize root canal treatment by dividing the root canal system into distinct zones and applying specific instruments and techniques tailored to each zone's unique characteristics. This technique enhances procedural efficiency, increases treatment precision, and improves the overall success rates of endodontic therapy. In this article, […]

A C-shaped story: endodontic management  and endocrown rehabilitation

The C-shaped root canal configuration is an anatomical variation which is caused by the fusion of the mesial and distal roots either on the buccal or lingual root surface (1). The term ‘‘C-shaped canal’’ was firstly used by Cooke and Cox in 1979 (2). Numerous studies have reported that the incidence of C-shaped canals is […]

The probability of two fives

With increasing number of reports and studies of unusual root canal morphology, It is of utmost importance that the clinician must have detailed knowledge of the pulp canal anatomy to achieve effectively proper cleaning and shaping of the root canal system. Failure to recognize the aberrant root canal anatomy will lead to an unsuccessful treatment and thus failure of the endodontic therapy.
This case report describes a very rare scenario of a mandibular right first molar with five root canals (three in distal root and two in mesial root) and a maxillary left second molar with also five root canals (three in the mesial buccal root, one in the distobuccal root, and one palatal) in the same patient.

C-SHAPED MAXILLARY SECOND MOLAR

Root canal treatment of maxillary second molar can be very difficult . Beside the limited accesibility of tooth in mouth with limited mouth opening ,with complex root canal anatomy specially if its a c shaped anatomy with irregular canals and challenge to clean and disinfect the isthmus part specially are the major difficulties of root […]
