    • NEWSLETTERS SUMMER 2012 Dentsply Tulsa Dental Specialties Charline Morris Charline.Morris@dentsply.com 416.735.6777 WWW.TULSADENTALSPECIALTIES.COM I’d like to thank Dr. Ken Serota for his assistance in the preparation of our Summer Newsletters. His expertise and commitment to continuing dental education has been the hallmark of our collaborative efforts going back over nine years.....The material presented is an introduction to a series of courses being prepared for our fall evening study club sessions. Our objective is to ensure that you have continual access to information from both the print and digital worlds to provide you with the ability to deliver the highest calibre endodontic therapeutics possible.

    • Summer 2012 Access Uninterrupted flow by degree It is generally accepted that all maxillary first molars have a second canal in the MB root and in a small percentage of cases there may be three or more. In o almost 15% of the mesial roots of mandibular first molars, an “isthmus canal” can be detected. As the incidence in the maxillary molar is far more o o prevalent, let’s examine the means by which predictable instrumentation of the MB2 can be achieved.The MB2 is very curved at the coronal limit of the canal. The shelf of dentin that grows over and obscures the minute orifice o o has the effect of moving the canal entrance distal to the true path. When an exploratory file (.06/.08) is inserted, it immediately runs into a wall of dentin on the mesial aspect of the canal. The extremely narrow confines of these typically small canals will not allow the file to negotiate the typically abrupt curvature. Excessive vertical work merely crumples the file tip and risks ledging the orifice. In order to create access, the file tip was worked to the point where resistance is met, pulling the file to the mesial to remove the overhanging dentin. When the file first engages, only 2 or 3 flutes of the file may engage. As these few flutes are worked, movement of the MB2 orifice to the mesial becomes evident. Once the operator gains experience, this mesial shift is done with ultrasonic troughing tips to Axial slice of mandibular molar showing the middle mesial provide a more definitive mesial incline into or isthmus canal evident in almost 15% of cases. the canal. Ultrasonics can be augmented by micro- etching. The “satin finish” makes the orifice more visible with magnification and illumination. It should be noted that a thin film of water or alcohol enhances visibility at this point. When the initial access glide path is sufficient, the file begins to increase its penetration of the canal space. This will coincide with an increasingly vertical file orientation. A significant number of small files will be utilized for this procedure as they will tend to buckle. You want to avoid a lot of work with the file tip early on, following the balanced force watch-winding technique to prevent ledging within the canal. Slow and incremental removal of the cervical ledge obscuring the true path of the MB2 canal will enable accurate negotiation of the full canal length with time and patience. 4 to be cont’d
