Advancements in Root Canal Therapy: New Technology to Improve Patient Outcomes

By Thomas V. McClammy, DMD, MS; Enrico DiVito, DDS
Commercial Supporter: Sonendo

Success rates for endodontic procedures can be quantifiably and qualitatively improved with the use of new multisonic technology, which provides a far more conservative and thorough methodology than common root canal procedures. The system allows the clinician to transition from a sense of "cleaning and shaping" to "preparing" the root canal system. Overall advantages can be found in reduced clinical fatigue and decreased discomfort for the patient. The authors of this article conclude that multisonic technology enables the clinician to provide a higher level of care that better accounts for the complexity of the root canal system.


  • Describe the principles underlying root canal therapy and mechanical objectives.

  • Discuss the endodontic procedure protocol for a new technology.

  • Explain the advantages of using the new technology.
