Active Comparator: Apex Locator
Working length for cleaning and shaping of the canal is measured by Electronic Apex Locator in this group.
Device: Electronic Apex Locator
Electronic Apex Locator is used to find the apical foramen of the root canal. It uses a weak electrical current passed through the canal by endodontic file.
Active Comparator: Radiography
Working length for cleaning and shaping of the canal is measured by Radiography in this group.
Device: Dental Radiography
Radiography is used to measure the length of root canal by putting an endodontic file in the canal and taking the radiography to measure the length.
Other Name: pre apical Radiography
- adequacy of final working length [ Time Frame: at the end of cleaning and shaping ]
