ATYPICAL MORPHOLOGY –

These teeth from two patients this week were initially started by the restorative dentist. After careful debridement, the dentists noted that there were likely additional canals and referred the patients to Renovo. Interestingly, these teeth actually had three canals that split and merge at various levels of the teeth. A favorable outcome is anticipated and these cases demonstrate the benefit and need for microscope-aided endodontics.

Aside: Most endodontists actually find the mandibular premolar (rather than a molar) to be the most challenging tooth to treat due to the prevalence of this type of complex anatomy in a relatively confined space.
