Current criteria for success in endodontic treatments.
Endodontics, in its technical and instrumental aspects, is in continuous evolution. The changes that have taken place in the last 20 years, in the field of diagnosis, instrumentation and obturation, make endodontics a more predictable treatment with clinical success over time.
In the field of diagnosis, improvements have been incorporated in magnification, the appearance of CBCT, the generalised use of parallelisers, GVR or locators.
of apex. While in the field of instrumentation NiTi and rotary instrumentation with continuous or alternating movement have appeared; and in irrigation, the concepts of pre-clogging irrigation and activation of irrigation solutions. Finally, in the field of obturation, thermoplastics has provoked a real revolution in this type of treatment.
The aim of this work is to present concepts that we must bear in mind when planning and carrying out our endodontic treatments and to accompany it with 2 clinical cases developed with a new instrumentation system with alternating movement, which offers many advantages in a predictable way for both the professional and the patient in an endodontic treatment.
