With the advent of rotary nickel-titanium systems in the early 2000s, a new challenge arose for Schilder’s concept invented in the 1970s, as the discrepancy between the speed of root canal preparation with fast mechanical systems and effective control became apparent of infections. An update to the cleaning and shaping concept is now required.

The authors of Shaping for Cleaning the Root Canals, five recognized specialists in End- odontics from Universities in Brazil with a history of excellence in research and clini- cal practice within the specialty offer readers their extensive knowledge of the clinical, biological and material sciences that underlie the practice of contemporary endodontics.

In this sense, the book complies with the current standard of root canal preparation to maximize efforts to ensure disinfection after canal shaping.

To better clarify the ideas surrounding the concept of Shaping for Cleaning, the authors addressed the evolution of root canal preparation through an in-depth discussion of the impact of the technological revolution on each stage of root canal treatment, including scouting, glide path, patency, coronal augmentation, irrigation, shaping and remodeling, based on the best available knowledge supported by cutting-edge scientific evidence, proposing simple treatment protocols that take root canal anatomy into account.

Shaping for Cleaning the Root Canals is a true combination of clinical, scientific and educational expertise to provide the reader with a meaningful learning process for any practitioner interested in the field of Endodontics.
