Dangerous mesial curve

This lower second molar was very difficult to access. The patient had a
very narrow arch and a very strong tongue which ripped the dam right before
obturation. It was tempting to use rotaries because of the difficulty of
access, but these are precisely the types of cases I resist the temptation
knowing file separation is a significant risk. I lightly used rotaries
briefly at the end, but mostly hand file recapitulations with precurved
files. It looks like the guy who treated the first molar had no fear of
using rotaries, posts, or anything else in his closet. - Terry
Nice Shape too ... That third molar would be a pain to treat even if it is
extracted .... about the first molar .. it may be just a matter of time ....
what were your final sizes with the hand files Terry?? .... Sanjay Nayak
