OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to determine radiographic and microscopic appearances of root canal fillings performed by undergraduate students using vertical and lateral compaction techniques. STUDY DESIGN Thirty dental students were instructed how to fill curved simulated canals with gutta-percha and sealer using lateral and vertical compaction. Digital radiographs were taken in buccolingual and mesio-distal projections; radiographs were evaluated for homogeneity and root canal wall… CONTINUE READING
