The MB Root: Case # 1

The mesial roots of maxillary molars and lower molars are the most challenging and variable of root canal shapes and types. This single root may have a multitude of root canals and I have seen anywhere from 1 to 4 canals in this single root. As endodontists we have the education, skills and equipment to properly treat these canals. This single root makes up of about 70% of my retreatment practice. Treating this single root properly the first time is key to your tooth’s health and future. You will see examples of the types and kinds of root anatomy types that can be located in your tooth.
