Damage by me and damage control by me. Over 3 hours spent on a tooth 
with a preventable error - Jason

Super recovery - DougR Jason why do you think you had this ledge??? You had the canal to start with. Nice recovery - Carlos Murgel Cool recovery, Jason!! - Marga Carlos & Marga- I probably perforated after the inital crown down sequence with the K3's. I speculate that I was able to get a .04 #20 and even maybe .04 #20 into the curve, before I lost control an went out the root with stiffer rotaries as I was trying to enlarge. Getting back inside wasn't as tough as it usually is. On a case like this with a severe distal curve, my normal technique is to finish with .02s. Thanks for you feedback, - Jason BRILLIANT EFFORT ĦĦĦĦ Some trick to bypass 06 C+ fragment and closed angle bend? a part of amount of patience... I suppose you bypass with a prebent file manually and with the file in place connect the M4 reciprocating motor, that´s it? Thanks for sharing - Nuria
