MicroEndodontics. Case Study Number 500446
A few days ago we were confronted to this three rooted mandibular first molar (Radix Molar or Radix Entomolaris), a rare anatomical variation of teeth, where a third supernumerary root is located distolingually in mandibular molars. Root canal system calcifications and a canal curvature with an “S” form made this endodontic procedure an extremely complex one.
In that specific case, endodontist operative microscope was most helpful when striving to find the fourth canal entry in distal root, allowing for us not to omit the fourth deeply embedded root canal. This microendodontic case study enlightens how dental operative microscope may assist the practicing dentist into a more secure root canal procedure for his patient.
