The concept of guided endodontics are used for access cavity preparation and Endodontic surgery, in order to achieve safer and predictable results. It offers highly predictable outcome and lower risk of iatrogenic damage. This technique may be a promising method for the endodontic or surgical treatment of complex cases.
