The introduction of Ni-Ti Rotary instruments has deeply changed the approach to and the results of endodontic treatments. Despite several discoveries being obtained through the years, several things are still to be understood about Ni-Ti files and their behaviors while rotating inside the root canal. Indeed, it is not infrequent Ni-Ti instruments failure, such as untwisting or even separation. Moreover, it is still controversial both the influence of the different in vitro studies on clinical performances and the relationship between the different properties and their influences during instrumentation. The aim of the current Special Issue is to increase the knowledge about the in vitro and in vivo performances of rotary files, with the scope of increasing the safety of root canal therapy thanks to more efficient instruments and instrumentation techniques. With these premises, the need for better and more specified studies about the Ni-Ti rotary instruments in vitro and in vivo behavior is arising day after day, mainly but not only focused on better specifying the relationship between the different well-known characteristics of rotary files as well as the in vitro evaluation of the multitude of new files recently introduced on the marketplace. Last but not least, the interaction between shaping technique and both cleanness effectiveness and tooth resistance.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Medicina is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1800 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.
