Harald: thanks for sharing your cases. how do you obturate the canals? - ahmad

Harald, did the three canals converge to one POE? Guy

Guy, I am nor sure if they converged. The DB and DL canal had the same length and M canal was 1 mm longer. All the masterpoints did go to working length and that would normally say that the canals do not coverge, but no x-ray showing separate foramen.

Ahmed, These two cases was filled with cold lateral condensation with Epiphany/Resilon - Harald
