Non-vital case. Two visits. CaOH2 in between.Could not get patent on 
the palatinal canal, although the patient felt my file working! 
No EFL measuring also. Patent on the buccal. A lot of precurved 
handfiles.The buccal one had a severe curve within the last 2 mm. 
ProTaper S1 and S2, then Profile up to 06/30 on the palatinal and 
04/30 on the buccal. Modified Schilder. And I had to get this lateral, 
because my assistant already saw it on the wire-film and said: Ohh,
have you seen the lateral?  :))). During obturation of the buccal 
canal the patient had some dyscomfort. Didn't somebody
here on Roots mentioned a special name for this? 
( pain while filling a lateral canal). I hate this little gap between
Backfill and adhesive build-up. :(((  - Jörg Schröder, Berlin, Germany

Cool case Jörg!

At BU they used to call it popping laterals, according to Rob Kaufmann. 
Forget about the little gap, enjoy the nice endo. In almost every single 
case there are some slight imperfections to be detected, the question is 
whether this will prevent healing. Perfect cases don't exist, healing and 
happy and symptomfree patients, that is all that matters - Marga

Thank you Marga, doing endo I sometimes feel like a donkey with the carott 
(the perfect case) in front of his head. Always trying to get it and not 
recognizing that I am moving. But on the other hand striving for perfection 
is what makes the things you mentioned happen more likely: healing, 
and happy and symptomfree patients. -  Jörg
