“Whoops, your tooth is cracked Ms. Jones!” Not really, you just perforated the floor of the No. 30 looking for that calcified canal. Here is a trick to help you avoid this situation.
Anatomy! It is part of every stage of root canal therapy. One of the biggest challenges with anatomy is finding all the canals during initial access. If you saw last month’s review of the Munce discovery burs, you’re well aware issues can arise when looking for canals.
When looking with a highspeed, improper vision can make it difficult to locate the canal. This is because the tip of the access bur is visually blocked by the head of the motor, making it very difficult to trough along the chamber safely to find the canal.
The ProUltra SINE access refinement tips are a great option for difficult anatomy. The diamond coating allows for conservative removal of dentin when looking for canals. Because of the contra angle bend in the instrument, you can see what the tip is doing without the head blocking your vision. This clear view makes it possible to safely assess challenging cases.
These tips come in six different shapes. Each shape has different uses including troughing, pulp stone or post removal, and separated instrument removal. ProUltra SINE tips are very durable and a great tool to have in your armamentarium for conservative endodontic treatment.
Now you can find the canals without saying, “Whoops, we just went through the furcation!”
