Subject: [roots] Wednesday case no.2 Fractured instrument & deep apical split

This is the second wednesday after the summit, hence time 
for another case.  I also got the new sensor :) I also am 
able to take better pictures now, thanks to the tips from 
JŲrg and Glenn. I'll keep practicing.

Comments/critique are always welcome. - RafaŽl

Beautiful work RafaŽl, and awesome documentation!! Do you think a crown is indicated here? - Marga Very nice case Rafael, What light did you use to get enough view inside the canal ? What kind of a mirror ? Very, very nice work - Thomas Hi RafaŽl, just excellent!!!! You rock!!!! What kind of mirror did you use? - JŲrg (HWH) Well done, Rafael ! Have you done any excentric xrays to show the apical split after root filling ? It shouldnīt be too difficult with the sensor placed already. BTW how about the next summit in BrŁgge ? - Hans Excellent everything specially the deep photos, very hard to make them (at least for me). I also like the shape that you gave at the canal, maintaining the original anatomy, beautiful. - Carlos Murgel CD, Dr. Rafael.. top class endo, and fantastic photography.. - awesome -Sashi Wonderful result Rafael......really great case. thanks for sharing and great photos - Glenn PS nice how you got that file tip out.......Congrats - Glenn
