This is why the use of the microscope is so IMPORTANT in Endodontics. This is an upper first molar with 5 canals. I like to clean and shape first the main canals to work after on the accessories. In this case I found a MB2 and MB3 canal. It’s IMPOSSIBLE to do this with the limitations of our naked eye, even with loupes. Mind as well the “conservative” access done in this case.
Love looks through a telescope; envy, through a microscope.
This case was referred to me for a re-treatment of the upper first molar with apical periodontitis. I found 5 canals. Notice the unusual location of the MB2 at the entry of the palatal canal and a DB2 next to DB canal
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.
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 of hard work but in the end everything was worth it.
I just want to say thank you to all the people who has supported and pushed me during all these years.
