Introduction: New diagnostic tools have emerged with a view to easing and enhancing endodontic treatment. Cone-beam computed tomography is presented as a new endodontic tool used to diagnose root resorption and frac- ture, in addition to locating canals which are not revealed by conventional radiograph. In association with this new technology, single rotary files have been widely used in Endodontics. Objective: To report a case conducted by means of a single file (RECIPROC) in which cone-beam computed tomography was requested to locate calcified canals.
