OBJECTIVES This study compared the time-based lateral expansion of two sizes and two batches of water-expandable obturation points (CPoint, EndoTechnologies, LLC) and a similar-sized gutta-percha point (control) at various distances from the point apex: 5, 10, and 15mm. METHODS Two batches of sizes 25 and 40 (0.06 taper) CPoints and a single lot of size 40 (0.06 taper) gutta-percha were tested (N=5). Points were fixed to the bottom of a Petri dish, and digital images of each point location… CONTINUE READING
