OBJECTIVE To evaluate the influence of apical size on cleaning of the apical third of curved canals prepared with rotary instruments. METHODOLOGY Forty-four mesiobuccal canals of maxillary molars teeth were instrumented to different apical sizes (30, 0.02; 35, 0.02; 40, 0.02; 45, 0.02) using a crown-down technique. After canal preparation, the apical thirds of the roots were submitted to histological processing and examination. The specimens were analysed at 40× magnification and the images… CONTINUE READING
