Dynamic navigation (DN) is a promising technology designed to guide the placement of drills/implants in real time, based on information generated from the patient’s computed tomography (CT). In endodontics, dynamic navigation is used for localization of calcified canals as well root-end resection surgeries. Treatment planning and surgery can be performed in the same appointment, based on data from patient’s cone-beam computed tomography. This technology allows conservative and more accurate access opening as well as minimally invasive bone trephination for apicoectomy surgery.
