INTRODUCTION The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the prevalence of bilateral three-rooted mandibular first and second molars in Indian population. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 215 patients were screened bilaterally for mandibular first and second molar and 430 samples of periapical radiographs were obtained. The gender, symmetry, and(More)
OBJECTIVE This study evaluated the marginal leakage around class-I cavity preparations restored with Nanofilled composite (Filtek Z-350 A2 shade, 3M ESPE, USA) and a self-etch adhesive (Xeno III, DENTSPLY/Caulk) using different composite placement techniques. MATERIALS AND METHODS Standardized class-I cavities were prepared on 36 caries-free, extracted(More)
OBJECTIVE This study investigated whether the canal curvature has an influence on the accuracy of Electronic Apex Locator. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixty mandibular posterior teeth were decoronated. A number (No.) 10 file was inserted into the mesiobuccal canal and radiographs were taken to determine the degree of curvature by Schneider's method. Samples(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to compare the microleakage in Class II box preparations with the gingival margin above and below the cemento-enamel junction (CEJ) restored with Silorane composite and methacrylate composite using two different layering techniques. MATERIALS AND METHODS Standardized box preparations (mesial box 1 mm above the CEJ and distal(More)
