Caught a #14 Jellyfish!
Products: Protaper SX Gold Orifice Shaper, ProFile Rotary Files, Calamus
The patient was referred by her dentist for completion of RCT on #14 due to inability to negotiate MB and MB2 canals. Tooth #14 was diagnosed as previously initiated with symptomatic apical periodontitis. Root canal therapy was completed in three visits with interim calcium hydroxide used as an intracanal medicament. The root canal system was instrumented using ProTaper SX Gold orifice shaper and ProFile system while utilizing passive ultrasonic irrigation with 6% NaOCl and 17%EDTA. The two mesial canals were previously ledged and hand instrumentation was utilized to clean and shape past the ledges with ProFile step-back. The canal system was obturated with warm vertical condensation using Calamus obturation system to backfill. Patient was referred back to the dentist for a final restoration.
