One of the challenges of Endodontics is the location of root canals, so that they can be cleaned, reshaped and filled properly. The use of ultrasound and visualization of the operative field under magnification has increased safety in certain endodontic treatments, ensuring optimal results. The objective of this study was to show a clinical approach of treating a tooth with calcification at the opening of canals where access to the pulp chamber was performed, followed by removal of calcification and location of canals under magnification using ultrasonic inserts. The case was finished with definitive crown-root sealing in a single session. It can be concluded that the associated use of ultrasound under magnification is a feasible clinical strategy to access areas of calcification.
