Doug Kase, D.D.S.
In endodontics as with many other things in life there are no shortcuts. Everything that leads to a successful outcome when doing root canal is dependent upon the preceding steps when initiating treatment. Obviously proper diagnosis is first. To avoid the dentolegal stuff; communication, alternatives, documentation and consent are paramount as well!

A patient walks into your office and you determine that he or she needs root canal treatment on a mandibular incisor. You may think “Piece of cake!” after looking at the radiograph, which appears to have a single narrow canal. Yes, you are correct that mandibular incisors usually (97-98%) have a single canal but these single canals tend to be wide labiolingually.(Continued)
