calcification teeth calcified tooth blocked root canal lengths obturation technique x-ray endodontic X-rays of root canal therapy showing initial lengths and then final obturation in an upper left first molar of a 40 year-old female. This tooth exhibited calcification of the root canal.
calcification teeth calcified tooth  endodontics root canal instrumentation cleaning shaping xrays 1) & 2) X-ray series of tooth #14 showing a large, old silver filling in a patient who had been experiencing root canal pain. Note the decreased size of the pulp chamber known as teeth calcification. 3) X-ray of endodontic file lengths. Note that the calcified mesial root of #14 initially prevented instrumentation. 4) Final endodontic obturation showing that the mesial root of #14 was located and treated. Chronic inflammation in the dental pulp due to the presence of large, old fillings can increase the difficulty of root canal therapy. Earlier root canal therapy should be considered in these situations.

calcification teeth calcified tooth  endodontics root canal therapy instrumentation cleaning shaping Tooth calcification. 1) & 2) X-ray series of teeth #'s 19 & 18 showing large, old silver fillings in a 38 year-old female patient who had been experiencing root canal pain. Note the teeth calcification - decreased size of the pulp chambers in these teeth. 3) X-ray of endodontic file lengths. Note that the calcification in the mesial root of #18 initially prevented instrumentation. 4) Final endodontic obturation - filling - showing that the mesial root of #18 was located and treated. Large, old dental fillings can cause chronic inflammation in the dental pulp and thereby increase the difficulty of root canal therapy. Earlier root canal therapy - preventive endodontics - should be considered in these situations.
calcification teeth calcified tooth  discoloration trauma hemosiderin  dentinal tubules blocked An x-ray of the maxillary right central incisor shows complete obliteration of the canal from tooth calcification secondary to a history of trauma. There was no pain. In the photo note discoloration of the coronal portion of the tooth - this is a common sign of teeth calcification. This is a result of the breakdown of blood in the pulpal chamber and the leaching of hemosiderin into the dentinal tubules.

 

 Information about these dental photos

     In medicine and dentistry "left" and "right" are based upon the orientation of the patient's body and not how they appear in a photograph of a smile.  For example, a reference to the upper left teeth will actually appear to be on the right side when viewing a picture of the face and similarly an upper right tooth will appear to be on the left side.

     Many words in dentistry like oral and mouth have a similar meaning and are frequently used together to help our readers find specific words they best understand.  This is particularly important because a majority of our visitors are from countries where English is not their primary language.  Maxilla or maxillary refer to the upper jaw.  Mandible or mandibular refer to the lower jaw.

     There are many other similar word combinations used throughout this website because our pages are read by patients and dentists.  A few of the most common are discussed here.  Tooth decay, tooth cavity and dental caries all mean the same thing.  Tooth, teeth and dental are also frequently interchanged as in teeth veneers or dental veneer laminate.  Oral rehabilitation and dental reconstruction mean smile makeover.  The word for x-ray may be used with or without a hyphen (this is true for other words too) and can also be called a radiograph.
