Abstract: Calcification of the root canal system is a well-studied phenomenon. Calcification of the dental pulp may be discrete or diffuse in its form. Richman first introduced the concept of using ultrasonics (US) in endodontics. Dental traumatic injuries may be a cause for calcification of the pulp space. This case report demonstrates the use of US in the management of calcified canal having periapical pathology. US is considered an effective method in managing calcified canals in gaining access. With the use of US, access refinement and location of calcified canals have generated more predictable results.
