Endodontic. Case Study Number 525214
Locating both root canal entries without lateraly perforating the root and without destroying to much sound tooth structure in order to keep tooth restorable, then, cleaning and shaping those root canals without loosing patency, without breaking an endodontic file and without perforating the root represent the two major endodontic procedure problems to overcome when treating calcified canals with an S form.
Endodontic Procedure. Case Study Number 449927
To treat such a tooth in endodontics we needed to deal with:
- Difficult access
- Long tooth (24 mm)
- Calcified canals (root canal system with dystrophic calcifications) to locate, shape clean and fill
- Second mesiovestibular (Mb2) to strive for with the help of a dental operative microscope
- Canal curvature with an “S” form (Bayonet shaped root canal)

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.
