Root canal obturation is the latest step of endodontic treatment, and seems to be the most difficult and time consuming step to achieve. New biomaterials of the bioceramics family allow us to reconsider this step of treatment, and maybe to simplify it without compromising the final goals. The flowable material is not only considered as a sealer, but must be seen as an adhesive filling material. The gutta-percha point is then used as a carrier and help for any needed retreatment. The aim of this talk is to explain the rationale behind this paradigm shift and to describe the new obturation technique based on a single cone use.
