Another great example of Radix Enomolaris that was just completed. In the Pre-Op the patient presented with a Previously Treated #30 with Acute Apical Abscess. Upon ReTx I noticed an untreated DL canal. The Post-Op shows the reverse direction of the extra DL root.
Here’s an interesting case and a fun root canal! In the microscope I could see another canal in the far distal/lingual corner of tooth #30. It’s what’s called a Radix Entomolaris – the presence of an additional distolingual root. This is opposite a Radix Paramolaris – the presence of an additional distobuccal root.
