Static guided endodontics has been successfully used for anterior teeth. However, with caution, this method can also be applied to premolar and molar teeth if the inter-occlusal distance is optimum to accommodate endodontic guide, bur (drill) and handpiece. For guided treatment of posterior teeth, good armamentarium and adequate inter-occlusal distance are the key to success. Selective canal re-treatment and mishaps of guided endodontics have been delineated in detail.
