I can’t imagine to do a root canal treatment without my microscope. The human eye is limited and without microscope, we are not able to see important details for the long term success of the treatment.
This photo shows different grades of magnification. It was taken before the obturation with the canals already cleaned and shaped that’s why the MB2 is so visible.
Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others.
On this kind of cases we just need to take extra care and patience to do it. It’s very important to enlarge the canal little by little, irrigating all the time to remove the smear layer and avoid ledges when we perform root canal treatments.
The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.
This case was referred to me for a retreatment. 2 canals were missed and not found from the previous treatment, MB2 and DB2. It’s very important to know the different types of anatomy and canal system configurations.
The difference between something good and something great is attention to detail.
Last month I completed my PhD. awarded with the Cum Laude. It was probably one of the most important days of my profesional career. It took me 3 years and and has been done over 3 countries, Spain, UK (where I was teaching at Manchester University) and UAE.
I just want to say thank you to all the people who has supported and pushed me during all these years.

This video is about a dentin bridge I found during a root canal re-treatment of an upper seven molar. Every time I found them I like to preserve these structures to avoid tooth weakening. Only with the help of the microscope we can distinguish these kind of formations from pulp stones. In this case the bridge was crossing the palatal canal.
What is great in man is that he is a bridge and not a goal.
Extreme case of root resorption. 13 years old patient on holidays suffering pain on central incisor. The whole canal was filled with Bioceramic (FKG), sealer and putty consistency. Last picture has been sent from his happy dad after 5 months. The tooth is symtomless and healing!!
