AIM To compare the ability of five different commercially available gutta-percha points to fill simulated lateral canals when subjected to warm vertical compaction. METHODOLOGY Fifty clear plastic teeth with a lateral canal in each third of the root were used. All teeth were filled using warm vertical compaction. Backfilling was completed with a sealer and the same gutta-percha point used during the apical condensation. After this, they were horizontally sectioned using a diamond disc adapted… CONTINUE READING
