A fully automatic navigation assistant for root canal therapy? What may initially sound like robo-doc treatment or treatment by remote control will take endodontics a significant step forward on the way to sustainable, reliable preparation. Cases presented in this article illustrate how digital endodontic assistance systems will revolutionise everyday treatment in the future.

Dynamic real-time surgical navigation digital imaging, diagnostics and impressions, and the use of computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacture (CAD/CAM) for prosthesis fabrication and lasers for soft and hard tissue augmentation are altering the developmental framework in dentistry. Nowhere is this more prevalent than in the foundational pillar of endodontics.

Nowhere in dentistry is technical progress as rapid as it is in modern endodontics. The development of flexible nickel-titanium (NiTi) files in the late 1980s created entirely new and hitherto unknown opportunities in the mechanical preparation of root canals. The following article gives a descriptive explanation of the decisive technical differences between a conventional file system and the latest generation of instruments. Employing a number of different scenarios, the article examines the opportunities available to ENDO specialists and beginners through the smart application of modular NiTi systems in different treatment situations.
