INTRODUCTION This study aimed to evaluate the precision of electronic apex locators (EALs) in locating the apical constriction (AC) during a root canal treatment compared with a histologic evaluation of the AC as well as the effects of possible influencing factors by means of a systematic review of the literature and meta-analysis. METHODS A systematic search of the literature was performed to identify studies that histologically evaluated the precision of EALs in human teeth. The identified… CONTINUE READING
