Dangerous mesial curve

Subject: [roots] 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
