Abstract

Purpose. The use of Masserann kit is a frequently recommended technique for the removal of canal obstructions. Although this technique is usually successful, it may cause excessive removal of dentin tissue in root canals. The aim of this study is to evaluate the perforation risk and the remaining dentin thickness in mesial canals of mandibular molars following the use of Masserann kit.
