Nickel-Titanium rotary instruments have established themselves as indispensable in the endodontic armamentarium. They have significantly contributed to simplify and speed up the shaping procedure. These instruments are available in different designs and alloys some of which seem to challenge our traditional view of endodontic instruments. NiTi alloys are poorly understood by their users and instruments can break in inexperienced hands complicating the original treatment and possibly forcing the decision of surgical endodontics.
Furthermore, the sheer simplistic approach of NiTi sequences conceals pitfalls that may lead to the failure of the endodontic treatment. Since extensive clinical and experimental data are available, applying the latest research findings to our daily clinical use, as well as keeping in mind the basics of endodontology can predictably improve clinical performance.
