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 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 Very nice, Bill - Guy
