Introduction
  • A root canal is the anatomic space within the
    root of a tooth.
  • Part of a naturally occurring space within a
    tooth, it consists of the pulp chamber (within
    the coronal part of the tooth), the main
    canal(s), and more intricate anatomical branches
    that may connect the root canals to each other or
    to the surface of the root.
  • Root canals presenting an oval cross-section are
    found in 50-70 of root canals.

  • In addition, canals with a "tear-shaped" cross
    section are common when a single root contains
    two canals (as occurs, for example, with the
    additional mesial root seen with the lower
    molars), subtleties that can be more difficult to
    appreciate on classical radiographs.
  • Recent studies have shown that use of cone-down
    CT can detect accessory canals that would have
    been missed in 23 of cases, which can in turn
    lead to apical periodontitis.
  • The upper molars, in particular, are predisposed
    to have an occult accessory canal in nearly half
    of patients.
  • When rotary nickel titanium (NiTi) files are used
    in canals with flat-oval or tear-shaped cross
    sections, a circular bore is created due to the
    rotational action of the metal.
