Working Length

    • The determination of an accurate working length is
    • one of the most critical steps of endodontic therapy.
    • The cleaning, shaping, and obturation of the root canal system cannot be accomplished accurately unless the working length is determined precisely.
    • the endodontic Glossary as “the distance from a coronal
    • reference point to the point at which canal preparation
    • and obturation should terminate,”
    • The ideal apical reference point in the canal, the “apical stop,”
    • The anatomic apex is the tip or the end of the root
    • determined morphologically,
    • The radiographic apex is the tip or end of the root determined radiographically.
