Case 106: What is the difference between an accessory and a lateral canal??

Assalammualaikum Wr Wb.. Good Morning!!

welcome back to SekilasKonservasiGigi.Com, a full story of my mini series updated from my social media such as instagramfacebookgoogle plus, and also twitter. Sometimes, I also updated my cases at Line or Linkedin. 🙂 this topic will focus only on conservative dentistry cases such as restorative dentistry and endodontic or root canal treatment.

Lateral canal spotted:
What is the difference between an accessory and a lateral canal??
Although these terms are often used interchangeably, they do mean different things. A lateral canal extends from the main, central canal to the periodontal ligament. Although the path may be somewhat turtous, anatomically it is a direct route. Most frequently, it is perpendicular to the main canal. The lateral canal is generally found in the main body of the tooth and might be quite near to the gingival margin. The accessory canal, on the other hand, is found in the apical region of the tooth and goed from apical secondary branching of the canal to the periodontal ligament. (Weine)

This case is an endodontic remanagement of lowet left second premolar. After crown removal, i built up the distal wall with composite resin. Shaped the root canal with Mtwo files (VDW) with clockwise reciprocal movement (150CW, 30 CCW, Denjoy Endomotor I-mate2C) along with copious irrigation of Natrium hypochlorite 5,24% and EDTA 17%. Sealed coronally with low shringkage stress flowable composite resin (filtek bulkfill flowable – 3M). The xray evaluation with VistaRay 7.1 (Durr) showed a well filled lateral canal, and intact margin from guttapercha, composite resin, and dentin.

Hope this dental restoration will be long last.
