Re-treatment was required for this mandibular 2nd molar (#47), due to chronic apical periodontitis.
The previous obturation was removed using hand files and rotary instruments. SAF 2.0 mm was operated in the distal canal and SAF 1.5 mm was operated in the mesial canals for 4 minutes each, with 4mL/min NaOCL continuous irrigation.
Obturation was done by heat-softened gittapercha, presenting the oval shape of the distal canal and the penetration of the sealer into lateral canals and isthmuses in the mesial canals.
