The aim of the present study was to compare the effects of ProTaper Gold, WaveOne Gold, ProTaper Universal, and WaveOne instruments on the amount of apically extruded debris. Eighty mandibular premolar teeth with straight root canals were selected and assigned to four groups (n = 20). The root canals were instrumented using ProTaper Gold, WaveOne Gold, ProTaper Universal, and WaveOne systems… The PTG group extruded less debris than the PTU group, and the WOG group extruded less debris than the WO group (P < 0.05). All the instrumentation systems tested in the present study were associated with apical extrusion of debris.
