The maxillary second molar (2 MM) has the most complex root canal system, and a high percentage of treatment failures is due to the impossibility of locating, instrumenting and obturating the second mesiobuccal canal (MB2). The aim of this study was to describe in vivo the prevalence and location of the MB2 canal in the mesiobuccal root of the permanent(More)
This paper presents a hybrid active noise canceling (HANC) algorithm to overcome the acoustic feedback present in most ANC system, together with an efficient secondary path estimation scheme. The HANC system provides a solution of two fundamental problems present in these kind of ANC systems: The first consists in a reduction of the acoustic feedback from(More)

BACKGROUND It is very important for a clinician to know the increased wear of mechanized files when establishing endodontic therapy. The aim of this study was to check the wear of the Primary WaveOne file upon shaping two, four and six maxillary molar vestibular canals. MATERIAL AND METHODS The deterioration of 40 files, divided into four groups, was(More)
BACKGROUND Several articles have used cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) to study the morphology of the maxillary molars and to ascertain its ability to visualize the second mesiobuccal canal (MB2); however, its geometric location has not been examined in depth. The aim of this study was to describe in vivo the prevalence and location of the MB2 in the(More)
Variations in the root canal’s anatomy play an important role on endodontic therapy success, primarily in teeth with pulp necrosis. Traditionally, the preparation of root canals was performed with the use of stainless steel hand files; but over the years, new flexible instruments were introduced to prevent or minimize iatrogenic errors in shaping the root(More)
Introduction: One of the main causes of failure in endodontic treatment of maxillary molars is the inability to locate the secondary mesiobuccal canal, preventing proper debridement or obturation. The aim of this study was to describe in vivo the prevalence and location of the MB2 in the mesiobuccal root of the maxillary first molar through cone-beam(More)
