using micro-CT," International Endodontic Journal, vol.
In this work, we opted for con- ventional gutta percha as it represents the reference material for canal obturation
and it is the most used by the majority of practitioners.
Further research should concentrate to develop materials that allow reproducible creation of impermeable root canal obturations
. For example, incorporation of DMSO into the sealers could be investigated.
Endodontic instrumentation and root canal obturation
are important and necessary steps of root canal treatment with a purpose of removing infected tissue from the canal and to seal the canal from future bacterial contamination.1

Efficacy of retreatment techniques for a resin-based root canal obturation
(2) Other applications include root canal revascularization, pulp implants, injections of hydrocolloids biogels in the root canal seeded with cells, or gene therapy in order to develop new endodontic therapies supplanting the conventional pulpectomy and canal obturation
After canal obturation
, all the roots were stored in test tubes wrapped in sterile gauze pads saturated with of 0.1% Na[N.sub.3] aqueous solution.
The main reasons for endodontic failure are apical percolation and the presence of microorganisms caused by incomplete instrumentation, inadequate cleaning, insufficient canal obturation
, and the presence of untreated canals.
