The Presentation will discuss the importance of apical patency in endodontic procedures. The video is best viewed in full-screen mode.


The use of a patency file in endodontics remains a controversial issue. Using a small K fi le inserted passively and intentionally by 1 mm through the fora-men is advocated by some investigators and clinicians as an important procedure designed to help the cleaning and shaping process, To aid in delivering irrigating solutions to “hard to reach areas” of the root canal system, as well as to the apical third. This procedure is even cited as an important step in achieving clinical success. Detractors of the use of the patency file have concerns with the increased extrusion of debris and irrigants through the fora-men, higher incidence of postoperative pain.
