The role of apical size determination and enlargement in the reduction of intracanal bacteria.

Abstract

The master apical preparation size in root canal therapy is debatable despite considerable research. The present study compared file sizes that bind at the apex before and during crown-down preparation and assessed the relation between apical size and extent of intracanal bacterial load. There were 100 single-rooted teeth biomechanically prepared after… (More)
