ProEndo Forum

Welcome to the friendly root canal forum.

This forum is open to discuss day-to-day root treatments. Let's talk about clinical difficulties and how to resolve them.

I like to share my strategies with you so that you can obtain consistent excellent results.

Or write in to discuss or ask any advice on any subject in Endodontics.

Look at the 3 dimensional fill near the apex.  How did i do this?  I think if you maintain the taper to the canal and control the "capture zone", then with warmed vertical obturation together with a flowable cement you will be able to obtain this kind of result.

Take a second look, yes, this is a lower canine not premolar!  

This was difficult to execute not only because the tooth was rotated and lingually tilted, but the canals were difficult to work through the very small access.

I used Blue activated rotary NiTi files to follow these crazy curves.

Webinar: 1st July at 8pm: Choosing a file system for the 21st Century.

I was kindly asked by Prof. Paul Tipton to present an endodontic presentation for his webinar series during the summer (covid break).  I have titled it "Choosing a File System for the 21st Century.  I preferred to call it "Searching for Tomorrow, Today."  I will discuss the various file systems on the market and compare them. Then I will introduce files that would lead us into the 21st century.  At the moment (today is 03 June 2020), I would like to keep this information unrevealed until after the webinar to keep your interest in the subject.  I would hope that it will make for interesting viewing and contemplation.  

Ok, you want to know? I can recommend gold and blue heat activated rotary NiTi files.  These files can bend/flex so easily so while rotating in a curved canal they are almost passive, and thus are easily able to follow the canal curvatures.  Have a look at some results in the forum.  Also please take a look at my new additional website: www.proendo-shop.co.uk for more information.

Root treatment of a lower left first molar failing with infection below roots.  My Retreatment exhibits a complex root canal system which should result in success and saving tooth.

MS1

       MS2

I tried over at least a year to promote apexigenesis using calcium hydroxide dressings. Unfortunately the apex did not respond. Conservative and orthograde root treatment did not work due to the large open apex. A surgical approach was decided that would be the best approach and treatment.
