Dr. John West, Spokane, Wash, brilliantly demonstrates an endodntic technique for “thinking the procedure through” before going chairside. The “follow” rather than pushing or shoving the endodontic file during a root canal procedure is explained, demonstrated, and clarified. The different file sizes needed are covered, including when and how the dental assistant can make the proper choice for each technique. The taper characteristic becomes the focal point of the files being used.
