Glide path management is an exciting, hot topic. In this section, the concepts, strategies and techniques that will result in a smooth, reproducible glide path will be emphasized. We will look at comparing, going to length immediately and establishing a glide path versus performing a sequential glide path, especially in longer, narrower and more curved canals. Finally, working length, patency and how to consistently create a smooth, reproducible glide path in various anatomical configurations will be addressed. Major emphasis will be placed on the specific cutting action that will promote securing canals with small-sized hand files.
