High "5" Max 1st Molar!!

   (0 reviews)

Dr. Rico D. Short

This started out as a normal case. Usually there are 3 obvious canals with an MB2 later on approximately 90% of the time on the Maxillary 1st Molar. I located the MB2 and cleaned and shaped it. Then all of a sudden I saw a little bleeding using the microscope in between the MB and MB2. Well it turned out to be an MB3! There were 3 canals in this MB root which became a total of 5 canals. I was able to open the MB3 up using the S1 EdgeTaper Platinum 21mm. The rest of the canals were cleaned and shaped with the Edge Files X7 25mm. The canals were obturated with the warm vertical technique using Kerr EWT Sealer.
