Subject: [roots] MiniMolars

Inspired by Marga Ree's latest beautiful case of a 3 rooted upper bicuspid 
I decided to also show 2 MiniMolars.

I treated/finshed the first one quite a while ago. This tooth was acually 
the first MiniMolar that I came across. Took me about 60-90 Minutes to get 
the fragment out [I know some can do it way faster- but I am working on it,
ok ;-))] which was left behind by the referal. It's pretty obvious why he 
separated the SS-file ;-)

The second one was finished a few days ago. Looking at the inital x-ray 
I knew what to expect. No hint for a buccal furcation when probing, 
but the width of the roots (+almost no taper) in the middle portion (almost
as wide as the crown) made me look for "more" . I am hoping for your opinions.

Very nice Christoph! - Arturo Nice cases and documentation chris. How did you remove the instrument? - Siju Christ, First class treatment, very nicely documented !! The only thing I would have done different, is placing a post in both cases - Marga
