Missed canal with acute bend

From: Venkat To: ROOTS Sent: Sunday, May 30, 2010 12:38 PM Subject: Re: [roots] Difficult case explanation For Thomas I'm learning from my mistakes and I'm posting one such blunders I did The premolar was referred for re-treatment and after removing the post, I could negotiate a missed canal with an acute bend (short radius of curvature) I initially negotiated with #6 but instead of slowly working the bend I forced stiffer instruments too early and ended up transporting the canal. I had to fill short. I informed the patient that I might do a surgery if the lesion does not heal. Luckily it did in this case. - venkat
