Evaluation of the changes to the initial simulated root canal anatomy when comparing the preparation made by three different rotary systems: ProTaper Universal, ProTaper Next and ProTaper Gold.

Conclusions

The canal width of 36 s-shaped canals was measured pre and post-instrumentation by ProTaper Universal, ProTaper Next and ProTaper Gold. Post-instrumentation analysis found that canals shaped with ProTaper Universal had a larger widening of the canal anatomy and a significant tendency to straighten the apical curvature compared to ProTaper Next and ProTaper Gold.
