This easy case demonstrates how even in simple straight canals, the continuous irrigation with the Self-Adjusting File can provide excellent results.
Coronal glidepath was created using #25/.10 and #25/.08 rotary orrifice shapers. Then glidepath to working length was achieved by #15 and #20 hand files, with NaOCl irrigation in-between.
The SAF was operated for 4 minutes with continuous NaOCl irrigation.
The final obturation x-ray demonstrates the penetration of sealer into an unexpected lateral canal.
