Aim: In Endodontics, a complete chemo-mechanical cleansing of the root canal system is essential to achieving success, which is gained through adequate tridimensional obturation of the endodontic space. Materials and methods: Today, thanks to modern technologies as Operative Microscope, ultrasonic tips, M-Wire Files, devices to activate irrigation and tridimensional obturation performed with thermo plasticized gutta-percha, satisfactory results can be obtained. Results: This study shows all the technologies that are available today to increase the chemomechanical cleansing and obturation of the entire and complicated endodontic system. Conclusions: The positive results highlighted by these clinical cases demonstrate how the use of modern technologies are essential to avoid iatrogenic injury, and guarantee, on the other hand, safe and reproducible results.
