Curves du jour

Subject: [roots] Curves du jour
Some nice curves in the mesial canals, and I troughed away a lot of
tissue between DB and Pal. Couldn't get the correct photo to show it
though. I was hoping to fall into DB2, but didn't. Nice little curve
at the end of the db canal as well.
Been without the camera for a week, so it's nice to be able to take some
photos again, I was missing it.
I was trying something new with the A95 to get more consistent photos,
and although not quite there, I am a little happier. - Bill
Nice bill. I'm assuming you hand filed to the apex? - gary henkel
Gary, Yep hand files to 20, then gates 2,3,4, then protaper.
I used up to f1 in the mesials to 1.0 from the foramen, f2 in the distal,
and f3 in the palatal. Then lots of recapitulation with curved hand files
in all canals.
Just got my Stropko Ni ti irrigation needles today, and even in the
mesials I was able to get them pretty deep, I think they are going to
improve my apical irrigation no end. - Bill
You got the f1 that far around? That's great. I thought you would have had
to have done that one completely by hand in the apical 1/3. - gary henkel
