AIM The aim of the study was to compare the quality of root fillings completed by lateral condensation (L), Thermafil (TF), and a new technique using Thermafil for backfilling (BF), with special emphasis on control of overfilling. METHODOLOGY Sixty curved canals in plastic blocks were prepared with the ProFile system to size 40/04 taper in the apical half and to 06 taper in the coronal half. The canals were divided into three groups of 20. Apical patency was verified with a size 15 K-file… CONTINUE READING
