Subject: [roots] Last case of the week

X-rays don't do justice showing the difficulty of this case. 
It looks routine and quite simple at first glance...
at least it did to me.

But, it was by far one of the toughest cases I have done. 
Even with crown off , it took me a long time to identify
all the canals. The mesials were confluent, but it had 2 
separate distal bunched up to the buccal.
3 hours of treatment time. I gave my scope a big hug....))

A very nice case Ahmad. It is obvious the canals were calcified. I never take those for granted. In fact my blood pressure is quite high, especially if I have no scope. The D canal managment is very nice Great case over all ! - Thomas P.S There are many cases that look on x-rays much easier then in real life
