This mandibular 2nd premolar was diagnosed with irreversible pulpitis.
Hand files were used to establish glidepath, and were then followed by the self-adjusting file, with continuous irrigation of sodium hypochlorite 4mL/min for 6 minutes.
Obturation was done by a combination technique - lateral compaction with GP and AH+ at the apical area, followed by backpacking with warm GP. The penetration of sealer into the lateral canal indicates that it was well-cleaned by the SAF System.
