AIM To test and compare the effectiveness and safety of two size 20, .04 taper rotary files that were used to create a glide path for the self-adjusting file (SAF) in curved canals of mandibular molars. METHODOLOGY Forty mandibular molars with curved mesial roots and narrow MB root canals were selected based on a passage of size 15 K-files to WL; size 20 K-files could not reach WL. Only roots with no visible microcracks were included. Two types of size 20 rotary files were used for glide path… CONTINUE READING
