Subject: [roots] Calcified Incisor

Hello Everyone,Here is a calcified Incisor I treated.
The canal was located by a combination of observing colour changes through 
the scope as well as periodically checking the direction of the munce bur 
with Radiographs.

Eventually, the canal was located at a position that was much more mesial 
and lingual than what I thought initially. (see slide 4 3rd picture)

comments welcome -  Siju

As usual a wonderful job. Alot of times I look at these tough cases as you present them and envision where I would trough . It is a great way to learn from your cases. Thank you so much for your wonderful documentation and willingness to share. More people could learn a thing or two about how to teach from your methodologies. Thanks again and congrats on a great result. - Glenn Very nice case Siju, and beautiful documentation! - Marga Great case clap Clap clap- Anantpal Nicely done Siju. Treating these kind of teeth always is difficult. Taking additional X-rays during the search for the canals, is one of the best things you can do. - Rafaël Great case Siju and neat documentation. Which sizes and lenghts do you recomend us to buy for this situations: finding calcified canals and searching MB2 and middle mesials? THANK YOU VERY MUCH SIJU. COULD YOU SHOW THE DRILL YOU USE FOR MB AND ISTMUS? - Javier Pascual Hi Javier, Thanks! I use 34 mm length ones. I normally use sizes 1, 1/2 and 1/4 for digging deep. I don't use these burs for MB2 or isthmus troughing anymore. I prefer using a long fine tapered bur from Horico. If you want, I will post some pictures. - siju Very nice case Siju, and beautiful documentation! - Marga Great documentation and great treatment. - Jörg Wonderful result - takes a lot of patience and skill to get there. Congratulations Siju - Peter What colour changes did you se?- Maria Hi Maria, The calcified portion of the canal will be dark when compared to the adjacent "whitish" dentin. - Siju siju, congrats !! being conservative of tooth structure on this cases is very important and difficult to achieve and you did the job neatly thanks 4 sharing your tips - sr
