Subject: [roots] tough molar
lower left 2nd molar with I.P.
Limited opening with trismus.
hand files and couple of GG to enhance the orifice.
temporary BU with core-paste until the 3rd molar is extracted.
The distal margin was a bear to isolate
due to deep caries and proximity of #17 - ahmad
That's brutal. hand files created those shapes? wow - KendelG
It took me 2.5 hours ......mixed that with every 5 minutes of sighing
and asking "are we done yet?", makes it a even longer......))) - ahmad
ahmad, looks good
Limited opening cases are a breeze with the endohandle - Steve
That thing is really neat. I bend my own 31 mm files so any size will work.
They only make up to a 15 I think...prebent. I wondered why no one had done
this before now. Also, why not a reciprocating handpiece. My rubber dam in
no longer there to prevent swallowing of instruments as was the old claim.
Anything I put into there is just about attached to a hose. ;-)

With hand files only?? Nice results in xrays!! Well done - Marcela
Thanx. but, if you look closely you can see the coke bottle I created in
coronal part all the canals with GG burs. I broke every single of the GG's...
maybe that was my sign from above not to obturate with NiTi...))) - Ahmad
But blasted GGs will break at the drop of a hat. They are brittle as heck.
If the patient had trismus already, they must have been dying by the time
this was over. I'd have had to broken some rotaries. ;-)

Very nice result on a tough patient ! Distal margin temporization looks a
little problematic, those are quite hard ! - Thomas
Why hand files, no rotaries? - Guy
