Dynamic Access Cavity Preparation

Designing the access cavity to allow straight line access (SLA) is a dynamic process. The shape of the access cavity is changed during flaring of the canal, to allow the flare to penetrate deeper.

The dynamic process involves
Create initial access cavity
  Penetrate canal
    Flare canal
      Adjust access cavity
        Penetrate deeper
          Flare canal
            ... and so on
