Within the field of endodontics, micro-computed tomography analysis (micro-CT) is a tool that is frequently utilized in void measurement within root canal filling materials.10-12 Micro-CT works by incorporating the use of X-rays in order to provide multi-slice 2D or 3D volumetric images of the area of interest.13 Micro-CT is a non-invasive and non-destructive approach13; thus, enabling a more precise void measurement as compared to histologic assessments.10-12 Furthermore, this technique allows for adequate examination of the internal anatomical structure of the tooth from various angles of interest.13 However, there is a lack of research incorporating the use of micro-computed tomography in the evaluation of voids, present in nano-based GP.
Microscopic endodontics is a specialised area of dentistry that uses high-powered magnification to get a close-up view of teeth and other oral structures during treatment.
