This week's new Dental Operative Microscope (D.O.M.) assisted root canal treatment displays an intricate root canal treatment procedure on a mandibular first molar presenting a very long root canal configuration with calcified canals. This case report number 474446 can be found at: A root canal treatment on a very long mandibular molar with apical third of root canals not visible on X ray image.
This case report is highlighted with an 8 second video of a rotating 3 D image of a first mandibular molar displaying the complex anatomical variations that can be found in such teeth.
These images and video may be obtained from "The root canal anatomy project" blog and where developed at the Laboratory of endodontics of Ribeiaro Preto dental school- University of Sau paulo by doctor Marco Aurelio Versiani and by doctor Jesus Djalma Pecora. The video displays the complex anatomy of such a root canal in red and gives us a better understanding on how difficult the cleaning and filling tasks of a root canal may be.
