The aim of the study was to measure the percentage of volume of voids and gaps in the apical third of root canals obturated with two techniques using micro-computed tomography. Fifty-four single-rooted teeth were collected and root canal-prepared. The roots were randomly allocated into two groups; each group was obturated by using thermoplasticized(More)
AIM To compare and evaluate the shaping ability of several nickel titanium instrument systems with different motions: two reciprocating single-file systems (Reciproc and WaveOne) and one continuous rotation/reciprocation full-sequence system [Twisted File (TF) Adaptive] using micro-computed tomography. METHODOLOGY A total of forty-eight mesial canals of(More)
AIM The aim of this study is to evaluate the influence of final canal taper on the sealing ability of Thermafil by using microcomputed tomography (micro-CT). MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifty-four single-rooted teeth were instrumented to apical size 40 taper 4, 6 and 8%. Teeth were divided into three groups. All teeth were filled with Thermafil (Dentsply,Tulsa(More)
