Metallurgic Advance and Endodontics for High Performance

In the last fifteen years, endodontics has developed increasing knowledge in order to obtain simpler and more efficient treatments. Endodontic files today are better performing due to better flexibility and design. Have flexible files means to be able to save more dentinal tissue and still have a shape that will enhance through cleaning of the system. Control of shaping is still a crucial moment of the treatment but luckily today is possible to have digital track of both torsional and cyclic fatigue applied on the files clearly displayed for convenience. Learning how to better use the files will enable to avoid procedural errors and file fractures. Alloy treatments and design options of new files will be described as well as simplified and systematic approach to the root canal shaping using new files.
