Challenges of Root Canal Preparation

During root canal preparation, you have two major goals: prevention of periradicular disease and the healing of any current infection. The first step in achieving this goal includes removing affected tissue from canals and creating adequate space within the canals to allow for necessary irrigation and medication. However, several challenges often arise during root canal preparation.

From eradication of bacteria to the proper identification of anatomical factors and the avoidance of ledging and perforation, the challenges of root canal preparation are numerous. Having the right files to tackle these challenges effectively is key.
