Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The endodontic Glidepath is the secret to radicular rotary safety. This article has offered a definition of Glidepath, explained why it is important in producing optimum endodontic mechanics, and described how to prepare a Glidepath for radicular shaping. Four obstacles to Glidepath preparation have been identified along with the solution for each one. Four manual motions have been distinguished that, if used properly, will produce a safe rotary result and an endodontic experience that you truly control.
