Endodontics often means going beyond patterns. Each root canal case is individual, just like a molar to molar, also a canal to canal is uneven. What is crucial is not to duplicate, not to follow routine.
Tooth anatomy is complicated, sometimes it can surprise! Premolar with three roots? For many clinicians Vertucci’s classification is the standard of root canal configuration, but everyday practice teaches to always expect the unexpected, deviations from dental anatomical norms are day-to-day reality.
Broken file – another challenge! A dilemma arises whether to remove or to leave? It may require also the removal of a significant part of dentin, increasing the perforation risk or even root cracking. One of techniques of managing a broken file is the so-called by-pass, passing by and filling to the full working length, main advantage –saving tooth tissues!
One tooth – three root canals – two different instrument systems. Does the choice of the mechanical shaping files system affect the preparation effect? Root canal preparation techniques: reciprocation or classical rotation movements – advantages, disadvantages, possibilities. Endodontics treatment is always a challenge, it gives the opportunity to choose an unconventional approach, which supported by clinical evidence, allows to achieve individual success. Choose your path, win your endo!
