One of the procedures employed for canal treatment during endodontic therapy, be it performed by manual technique or with rotary instruments, is the foraminal debridement, in which the first tool is used beyond the foraminal opening (0.5 to 1 mm). Some reflections on the clinical implications of these procedures include the real dimension of periodontal ligament thickness and its inflammatory and connective tissue reactive characteristics. These reflections and an insight for future studies are presented here.
