Curved root canals can pose challenges during instrumentation and obturation.  This presentation will go over tips and techniques used to minimize procedural errors such as zipping, ledging, file separation, and transportation.


Learning objectives:
1) How to use file impression to read direction and degree of curvatures
2) How to selectively shape roots with severe curvature
3) How to fit cones and successfully obturate severe curvatures
