Below is an brief outline as to the types of clinical cases that we deal with here at Endo61.
Single Visit Cases
This is the type of case that I would like to have day-in and day-out as it is a straightforward ‘virgin’ endodontic case that can be treated in a single visit. With Niti. alloy, curvatures such as this MB root are no problem.

And of course, to make the endodontist’s life interesting, there’s always a few odd cases thrown in!
