- A new case study number: 411716: "The dental operative microscope and the MTA tooth perforation repair. The impossible made possible". This new post in NEW CASES is also featuring a video sequence showing what can be seen through my Zeiss OPMI PRO ergo dental operative microscope. This video is a provisional one, the real McCoy will replace this one soon enough. (I still have to master I Movie and Youtube processes, hopfully it should not be too long, I have got some support from my 13 years old daughter).
- A nice comment left on post number: 297716 from Dr Juan C Mesia, a GP in Florida who also wanted to know what kind of files I was using and the sequence I used for curved canals. I gave an answer and I also added my four rules of thumb in shaping and cleaning ANY root canal systems. The answers are right there! However, there should be a fift rule: Always adapt your ISO K files shape to the suspected canal curvature in order to reach the apex.
- A nice comment left on post number: 483136 from Dr Nguyen at hotmail.com who also had a concern about sealer overfill showing on my postoperative X Ray film. I readily refered him to an interesting article written by Stephen L. Buchanan who (among other things) addressed this topic in the 2010 January issue of Dentistry Today: Tapered Shaping can make your life easier!
