Endodontic Procedure with High Magnification. Case Study Number 479527
Maxillary second left molar presenting with an acute pulpitis.
Root canal system preoperative condition: Calcified canals and a huge attached pulp stone obliterating 80% of the pulp chamber precludes any possible root canal procedure.
Procedure done under high magnification (Micro endodontics): An access cavity is made to uncover pulp stone coronal part, then a groove surrounding the attached stone is carved with a Buc 3 Ultrasonic Tip until it gets loose enough for complete removal. Unfortunately pulp stone was firmly attached to pulp chamber walls, thus, it had to be cut into pieces to allow for its removal.
Following pulp stone removal procedure, narrow calcified canals had to be located with the help of a microscope. At last, canals could then shaped, cleaned, disinfected and filled.
