Subject: [roots] Abrupt curve and some Hess

Quite an easy case preoperatively, but with a fast break at the apical third of both mesial and distal root canals
that i`ve noticed on the preop x-ray.

Ni-Ti`s were of no help here as i couldn`t get them past these curves, so the apical third was done with lots of
precurved handfiles.

I applaud those guys who restore these teeth with resins, unfortunatelly i`m not so good in placing them,
so i decided to choose good ol` laser verified amalgam.

As for the matrix i`ve used a wooden wedge to hold it with light cured flowable ingected around it.

IVAN.....Now that is teaching. Good stuff Ivan and great result, great case. I will look at the video. My only concern is that it looks like the dentin is still soft a little in the photos but again we both know that photos can lie. I can see why you like amalgam, that is a tough tooth to trat. Cya and what did you take the video with .....what camera - Glenn Thanks for these kind words, i guess you`d be surprised about my documentation set-up, it stupid and simple, i`ve just started and hope i`ll learn more on how i can improve myself in that field. Regarding your question, no it`s not soft, i checked with dyes and scratched with probe just before placing the build-up. As for the amalgam vs composite debate, i prefer amalgam to composite in severely broken down cases with less sound enamel present to bond to. As for the documentation protocol i use digital camera Sony HCS -10 Cybershot, and here`s just a direct composite case i did for the documentation purposes. That was an easy direct view, i`ll try to post some endo lately - Ivan Hi Ivan nice case - like the video - like the access - love the amalgam!!! - Ken
