The aim of the present study was to evaluate the quality of endodontic sealing in the apical 4 mm of narrow and curved canals using different filling techniques. Human teeth were selected and assigned to four different techniques: group A, Schilder's warm vertical condensation; group B, Schilder's technique modified by using an electric heater; group C, Schilder's technique modified by compaction of the apical tract at body temperature; and group D, a modified vertical compaction with apical… CONTINUE READING
