Root Canal Debridement: An Online Study Guide
Abstract
The Editorial Board of the Journal of Endodontics has developed a literature-based study guide of topical areas related to endodontics. This study guide is intended to give the reader a focused review of the essential endodontic literature and does not cite all possible articles related to each topic. Although citingall articles would be comprehensive, it would defeat the idea of a study guide. This section will present root canal debridement including subdivisions on canal access, canal debridement, orifice enlargement and preflaring, crown-down technique, balanced force, nickel titanium and other shape memory alloys, rotary enginedriven techniques, endodontic instruments, irrigation, electronic apexlocators, sonics/ultrasonics, smear layer, and intracanal medicaments. (J Endod 2008;34: e17– e31)

Introduction
The delivery of high-quality clinical care requires a thorough understanding of the endodontic literature. The Editorial Board of the Journal of Endodontics (JOE) has developed this online study guide for endodontists and fellow clinicians interested in endodontics. There are severalpotential applications for an online study guide. First, an online study guide permits clinicians to focus in on particular areas of endodontics where they can quickly review key papers devoted to one particular topic. For example, this particular study guide provides a summary of key papers in the area of root canal debridement including subdivisions on canal access, canal debridement, orificeenlargement and preflaring, crown-down technique, balanced force, nickel titanium and other shape memory alloys, rotary engine-driven techniques, endodontic instruments, irrigation, electronic apex locators, sonics/ultrasonics, smear layer, and intracanal medicaments. Second, a study guide permits speakers to efficiently review background material in preparation for future courses, lectures, or continuingeducational events. Third, an online study guide permits students to review key papers in preparation for future examinations or for development of residency seminars. And, fourth, an online study guide permits readers to quickly and efficiently access either the abstract or the entire paper cited in the tables (see Discussion for details).

Methods
One potential problem in developing an online study guide was to provide a summary of major papers that contributed to a given topic area. The inclusion of all possible papers on a given topic would lead to an unwieldy collection that failed to clearlyidentify key papers in the area. Of course, the exclusion of key papers is also problematic. To address this issue, the JOE Editorial Board developed the overall list of topics to be covered and then for each topic generated an initial tabulation of key historical and contemporary papers on that topic. This list was then sent to two outside reviewers who were both experienced educators and Diplomatesof the American Board of Endodontics. These reviewers then recommended additions and deletions of papers to the proposed topic list. In order to maintain currency, the JOE Editorial Board proposes to periodically update each topical study guide using the same peer-reviewed process as described above.

Results
The results of the study guide (1–154) for root canal debridement includingsubdivisions on canal access, canal debridement, orifice enlargement and preflaring, crown-down technique, balanced force, nickel titanium and other shape memory alloys, rotary engine-driven techniques, endodontic instruments, irrigation, electronic apex locators, sonics/ultrasonics, smear layer, and intracanal medicaments. This information is organized into Tables 1 through 13.
