Advances in recent years in endodontics, such introduction of rotary Niquel Titanium (NiTi) instrumentation have simplified the treatment process and improved the long term success in terms of procedural time, accuracy, and risk reduction compared with the previously used, manual, stainless steel files. However, selecting the most appropriate NiTi system remains difficult for clinicians because of the large number of NiTi rotary instruments available nowadays on the market. This paper aims to show, analyze and emphasize, on the basis of every day clinical practice, the possibility of realizing predictability root canal preparations with the crown down technique of ProTaper Universal system.

KEY WORDS: root canal treatment, rotary instrumentation, crown-down technique, Protaper Universal.
