Abstract

As the field of Endodontics has become revolutionized with development of rotary Ni-Ti files, the advancements of these file systems have improved the cleaning & shaping of root canal with time. Before using these Ni-Ti rotary instruments, a glide path preparation within canal seems to be very necessary. The endodontic glide path is a smooth radicular tunnel from canal orifice to physiologic apical terminus (apical foramina constriction). Glide Path can be generated either with stainless steel file system or rotary Ni-Ti Files. Recently, M -wire technology has been incorporated in endodontic file systems, which offers greater flexibility and resistance against cyclic fatigue. So, the present review article introduces the Proglider Glide path File (Dentsply mallifer) which is the next step in glide path management with progressive taper and M-Wire metallurgy, securing canals that have never been easier or safer.
