Navigation in Dentistry and Minimally Invasive Endodontics
- 15 Downloads
Navigation in dentistry is an important example of technological advancements applied to medicine and health science. It is also known as guided dentistry. It is emerging as one of the most reliable representatives of digital technology as it continues to transform surgical interventions into safer, predictable, and less invasive procedures. Minimally invasive endodontics (MIE) is a concept for maximum preservation of the healthy coronal, cervical, and radicular tooth structure during the endodontic treatment. What started as basic localization technique has followed the growth of modern technology beyond specialized uses and now guided dentistry is not just limited to implant planning and placement. Navigation can support several aspects of endodontic treatment, from localization of calcified canals to guiding the osteotomy for apicoectomy.
