Mediolaterally from the cervical thirds of 14, 15, and 16 to mid-palatine raphae.
In the cervical third (Figure 3), the adhesion of sealers Endomethasone and Gutta Flow to the dentin was good, with slightly uneven contact surface and small number of cracks (grade 2), while the adhesion in the root canals filled with N2 could be ranked as relatively good, because of the presence of space gaps between the dentin and the sealer (grade 3).
It can be inferred that transverse middle third fractures seen in periapical radiographs are actually oblique, with middle third fractures on the facial aspect and cervical third fractures on the palatal aspect in most cases.
A #15 followed by a #45 (Maillefer/Dentsply, Ballaigues, Switzerland) instrument was used to produce the apical stop (15 mm) and, during a stepback technique application to the middle and cervical thirds, a #50, #55 and #60 (Maillefer/Dentsply, Ballaigues, Switzerland) order was used in steps of 14 mm, 13 mm and 12 mm, respectively.
