AIM The aim of this study was to determine the shaping ability of GT Rotary Files in simulated root canals. METHODOLOGY Forty canals with four different shapes in terms of angle (40 degrees and 60 degrees) and position of curvature (straight section before curve: 8 and 12 mm) were prepared using a crown-down/stepback technique. Pre-operative and post-operative pictures, recorded using an image analysis system, were super-imposed and aberrations recorded. Measurements were carried out at 5… CONTINUE READING
