Dynamic Access Cavity Preparation


Designing the access cavity to allow straight line access (SLA) is a dynamic process. The shape of the access cavity is changed during flaring of the canal, to allow the flare to penetrate deeper.

The dynamic process involves
Create initial access cavity
Penetrate canal
    Flare canal
      Adjust access cavity
       Penetrate deeper
         Flare canal
           Adjust access cavity
             ... and so on

This animation shows 3 ways of deeply penetrating a canal, then combines the techniques to achieve deep penetration with maximum conservation of tooth tissues. An upper incisor is used in this example, but the principles apply to all canals.

I cannot believe how brilliant this site is. I have passed Part 1 of the MJDF exam, and it will help so much for my Part 2. The animations, videos and content in general is just brilliant. Thank you.
