Case description

This patient with this maxillary first premolar (#24) arrived to the clinic with acute pulpitis.
A glidepath was made by hand files (#8, #10, #15), and then by Mtwo.
Due to the apical delta, this case was treated by SAF in two phases - initially, a SAF 2.0 mm was used in the coronal and middle thirds, and then SAF 1.5 mm was operated in the apical area.
Obturation was carried by heat-softened guttapercha, and the continuous irrigation was able to clean the apical delta well, as can be seen in the final x-ray.
