Minimally invasive endodontics is a current concept whose purpose is to preserve the structure’s resistance of the natural tooth by downsizing the access cavity and the taper of prepared canals. The current technologies in endodontics, such as CBCT (cone beam computer tomography), dental microscope, ultrasonic instruments, nickel-titanium instrument, as well as the single-cone technique, are useful tools in achieving this goal.
