Endodontic Management of Dilacerated Maxillary First Molar with Tactile Controlled Activation Technique – A Case Report
Keywords:Controlled Memory Ni-Ti files, Dilaceration, Tactile Controlled Activation
Root canal treatment of teeth with dilacerations and Sshaped curvature often presents a challenging situation to the clinician. It is important to visualize the severity of curvature in a preoperative radiograph for successful treatment. Negotiation of such curvature requires coronal preflaring and precurved instruments. Controlled memory Ni-Ti files (Hyflex EDM) can be precurved and used with passive Tactile Controlled Activation (TCA) to negotiate the severe root canal curvatures. This case report presents endodontic management of dilacerated maxillary molar which was handled with Hyflex EDM files and TCA technique.
