Subject: [roots] Nice Hook

Referral case, pt. complained about discomfort on warm and cold 
from time to time. Bridge has been placed with temporary cement 
for about one year. I could not see any opening into the pulp
chamber (could have been happened during preparation) when I took 
of the bridge in the first visit. Tooth was sensitive to cold! 
After replacing the bridge there were no symptoms for some month, 
but 2 weeks ago Ihad to do the pulpectomy.

The preop film showed some of the special anatomy: staring in the 
pulp chamber there is a deeper bifurcation, the the canals seem 
to merge, then the canal space disappears at the end. I exspected 
a very short and severe apical curvature, so after C&S up to the 
last 2 mm I used prebended handfiles (fisrt SS then PT handfiles 
to get around that hook. A lot of recapitulation to keep WL and 
patency. Prebended GP-points also. Nice example of how to avoid 
complications by having a good look on the preop film.
