INTRODUCTION To determine whether increased apical enlargement would result in a complete preparation of curved canals and to progressively assess shaping quality using multiple microcomputed tomography (MCT) scans. METHODS Ninety root canals with a curvature of 25° to 50° were selected. Five MCT scans, 1 preoperative and 4 postoperative, were acquired from each canal. Canal preparation was performed up to size 50 using 3 techniques, nickel-titanium (NiTi) hand files, Mtwo (VDW, Munich… CONTINUE READING
