Dental Rubber Dam.Any root canal treatment must be done using the dental dam. It isolates the tooth, preventing any moisture from being introduced into the canals. Moisture can cause failure by interfering with materials used. More important moisture going into canals means germs gaining access into these canals.
advanced Root canal treatment techniques.This case shows how the advanced techniques in root canal therapy can treat failing cases, even years after the initial treatment. The initial treatment could not negotiate a side canal. Modern techniques use thermoplasitcized - softened by heat - filling material (Gutta Percha). When softened by heat, this material can go into side canals that were missed previously and caused failure in the original treatment.
