Endo Access Kit
Here are some of the teeth that I've accessed so far. Some are missing since I turned them in for grading.
|Open access on a canine|
|Open acess on pre-molar|
Steps to follow for accessing the canal:
- High speed hand piece with EAD4 bur to enter through enamel and dentin;
- followed by the use of a slow speed hand piece with the EARC4 bur to access the root canal and plane the canal walls.
- At this point a broach can be used to remove pulpal tissue.
- Using high speed han piece again the EARC4 or even the XGATE can be used to shape the access opening with guidelines for the particular tooth you are working on, eg: triangular outline for a maxillary central incisor or Oval outline for a canine.
Sorry for the crappy photos.
