Mentions: These findings and pulp vitality tests led to the diagnosis of irreversible pulpits, requiring root canal therapy. After anesthetizing the affected tooth and isolating it with a rubber dam, the standard access opening was prepared using a round diamond bur (No.4, MANI Inc.; Tochigi–Ken, Japan). Four canal orifices, two on each of the buccal and palatal canals, were confirmed by clinical evaluation of chamber floor. (Figure 2)
