Subject: [roots] Re: Nasty little curve

Here is a root canal I did today with a nasty little curve at the end of the MB root.  It had
great potential to be a "kick me" case. I spent a lot of time with small files, both hand and
rotary, establishing and maintaining patency.Scheduled 90 minutes, but ran into lunch.
Fortunately, #19 is asymptomatic -  Rick

From: Fred Barnett Sent: Friday, October 05, 2001 6:30 AM Beauty...what were your MAF's? Was this done with Profile .06's? Yes, MAFs were .06 Profiles. The D and ML were size 36 (green) and the MF was 28 (blue)although I almost got to length with the green. I also used hand files and .04s along the way. - Rick From: Rampton Sent: Friday, October 05, 2001 7:02 AM Beauty ! That one little sentence is worth gold. I believe it, but I don't always act it ... to my eventual dismay.

Same goes for your cases.- Rick
From: Fred Barnett Sent: Friday, October 05, 2001 3:47 PM Rick, Another question came to mind. Are you using NiTi hand files, GT hand files, Flex-R ss hand files, or plain old ss K-files to help negotiate these apical curves? For a number of years I have used the FlexR hand files. I like to try new systems, however. Are there any you recommend? Anyone else?- Rick Rick, have you ever got a chance to use the M4? - Jerry Avillion Jerry, You know, it is just one of those things I haven't gotten around to doing yet. It is on my list. We have the handpiece but I keep forgetting to order the Flexofiles. Maybe your message will jar my memory. I've been needing a religious experience lately. - Rick
