Subject: [roots] Skinny second!
The distal canal kicked my beee...hind. Since the distal had multiplanar curves, had a hard time placing cones there.
Ultimately decided to squirt the bejesus of the canal...don't like the skiny look. Hopefully it works.
Maintaing patency was a fight to the "end'.
She wants to wait on any treatment on the first molar...Rajiv Patel
nice hands brother - Kendel
Nothing compared to your squirt cases! - Rajiv
Just lucky....(: - Rajiv
Dear Rajiv, Not only lucky boy, just excellence as usual !!!! - Nuria Campo
Nice! You worry too much :-)) - Siju Jacob
hi,rajiv, really nice work , did u use rotary all the way to the apex?? and obturation with ???- nirav
Thanks Nirav, I used a lot of hand files., rotaries in hand. obturation with gutta percha - Rajiv
Hi Rajiv, Very well handled. I have always been impressed by the way u manage these curved ones.
What is ur protocol for C&S these multiplanar curved canals - Medha
Great effort! Keep on rocking! - Jörg
Thanks Jorg, Sachin and Medha,
My S&C protocol is pretty standard. Here it is:
1. Check for canal curvatures with small hand files -6,8,10
2. Use hand instruments in a crown down manner - makes it easy for smaller files to gain length easily
3. Gates - 3 & 2 mainly and occassionally 4
4. Create a glide path to atleast a 20 with hand files prior to using a rotary - I use Protapers and Profiles
and supplement with them patency files after every rotary use to maintain patency- Lots of irrigation and at
times Endoactivator to activate irrigation
5. In severe apical curves - prebending your files ( hand and NiTi rotary files both) helps a lot, in some cases
I do use the reciprocating hand piece
6. Some cases I do use the Endoactivator.
Hope this helps - Rajiv
