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)
