AbstractExploring the root canal is an important step in the treatment process because it is the first time the dentist or doctor sees the anatomy of the canal.
“Endodontic glide path means that there is a smooth path from the opening of the canal to the tip of the root” (West J., 2010). “Glide path preparation is the first step in chemo-mechanical preparation. It is a crucial step for figuring out the root canal anatomy and making sure the entrance into the apical part of the canal is smooth. The glide path can be made by hand or with nickel-titanium (NiTi) rotary files with a small tip diameter and taper” (Peter OA, Peter Cl., 2010).
Due to their tiny diameter, lack of rigidity, and presence of calcifications and other aberrations in the canal, small canals are difficult to navigate. These files frequently buckle or develop plastic deformation when subjected to vertical stresses
