It is a pleasure for me to introduce this Special Issue in the field of endodontics. Researchers are invited to submit their works.
Endodontics can be considered one of the most challenging disciplines in the field of dentistry: Experiencing difficulties during root canal treatment is common, and the breakage of an instrument, the missing of a canal, and the presence of any sort of obstacle interfering with the progression to the apex could lead to failure of the treatment.
Today, many innovations have been made in endodontics, from the intrinsic quality of the modern endodontic instruments which are more resistant to fracture, more flexible and efficient, to the production of even more safe torque-controlled motors with revolutionary kinematics that can avoid cyclical and torsional failure of the instruments.
This Special Issue is focused on innovating strategies for the diagnosis and clinical approach to the endodontic patient, including three-dimensional assessment of the pathologic conditions and the anatomical aspects of the endodontic space, and the development of new types of instrument and usage, with particular reference to thermal treatment and geometrical designs.
The definition of innovative strategies to approach the root canal system also includes computer-aided endodontics, with the development of specific software that could help clinicians to reach their goals and avoid iatrogenic damage to the important structures of the tooth.
Original articles, case reports, and reviews in the field of endodontics, which aim to enrich scientific knowledge and help not only clinicians, but also researchers involved in the development of new alloys, instruments, motors, and medicaments, are warmly welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
