Shaping during root canal treatment is one of the most important steps that will create a reservoir for irrigation and for the three-dimensional obturation of the endodontic system. 

The mechanical objectives of shaping in the early seventies, and the new instrumentation makes it possible for every dentist to achieve easily these objectives. Nonetheless, shaping errors can still occur like file breakage, due to cyclic and torsional fatigue. 

To avoid this kind of mistake that can jeopardize the outcome of the treatment, it is essential to apply a reproducible and feasible protocol from the scouting procedure, to the glide path management and the final shaping in primary treatments and retreatment cases. 

During this presentation, we will propose feasible techniques to reach the apical foramen and shape many types of anatomies in primary treatment cases and to remove filling material and iatrogenic obstructions in retreatment cases.
