This superbly illustrated book provides a comprehensive overview of guided endodontics, a technology-driven, contemporary treatment approach that represents a paradigm shift in endodontics. Guided endodontics is now the proven, safe, predictable and, clinically, the most effective method for management of calcified root canals and root-end resection surgeries. This book covers detailed step-by-step digital treatment planning and the clinical application of static guides and dynamic navigation systems for, both, surgical and non-surgical endodontic treatment. In essence, this novel technology utilizes preoperative CBCT scans and intra-oral 3D scans as well as uniquely developed special software, for virtual planning of the endodontic treatment. This book delineates 3D printing, CBCT, digital impression systems, static guide designing with different software and clinical application of static and dynamic navigation in endodontics and much more. The concluding chapter addresses the future trends in 3D guidance in endodontics, in particular, and dentistry in general.
