An Intricate Root Canal Procedure. Case Study Number 49736
A Vertucci type V pulp space configuration can be described as follow:
One canal leaves the pulp chamber and divides short of the apex into two separate distinct canals with distinct foramina (1-2).
According to Vertucci’s study in 1984 on a 100 mandibular molars sample, the type V configuration in distal root, occured only in 8% of the teeth examined.
In the apical third of distal root, each part of the split as been individually cleaned, shaped and filled with gutta Percha and Pulp Canal Sealer.
Please note the bayonet shaped root canal in distal root.
