Subject:extra root?

2nd premolar.   What's that on the distal?  At first, I thought it may be
another root, but I could never find an orifice - Jerry Avillion

Jerry! Great case! As usual! Please, can you tell us step by step how you obturate the canals! (and maybe you can send it to Julian for publication!) I thought you were using Sys B until NO! It was great meeting you! - Yosef Nahmias Looks like a convolution of the sinus floor..... Molar Del Sud 1. Cone fit (same as with system B), I use autofit GP. 2. Coat the cone with sealer (just like system B) 3. Sear off the cone at or a little below the orifice with hot plugger. 4. Microseal condensor to within 2-5 mm of WL (the depth of the condensor depends on the individual canal) 5. Cold plugger and push on the softened mass. I call it the System A (It's one letter grade better than the system B);) - Jerry Avillion jerry, it almost appears that I can make out a third pdl apical to the other two roots. Do you have a third canal? - Ray van der werf It seems like a "apical furcation defect".The form of the root(especially the palatal aspect behaves in such a manner that stagnation and enhanced peri-apical resorbtion can occur.IMHO morphology both internal and external (coronal and apical are quite important. regards - John Coetsee Maybe, but I couldn't find an orifice to it. - Jerry Avillion
