Mutilated teeth that require root canal treatment may present with minimal coronal tooth structure and are a challenge for isolation and restoration. If the functional integrity of the tooth is not maintained it leads to a guarded prognosis. This article demonstrates the concept of canal projection which ‘projects’ the canal orifices from the chamber floor to the cavosurface providing better visibility and access, and also ensures optimum isolation and reinforcement of the tooth structure whilst preventing canal blockage.
