    Author(s): Swathi UB, Sindhu Ramesh* and Pradeep S

    Introduction: Successful root canal therapy depends on effective debridement of the root canal by eliminating debris and microorganisms and shaping of the root canal system without deviating from the original anatomy. The ability to keep the instruments centered in curved canals and to deliver an accurate enlargement to the root canal without any unnecessary weakening to the root structure is crucial. Aim: This study aimed to compare the canal-centering ability of Protaper gold, WaveOne (WO), Wave one gold file systems using cone-beam computed tomography. Materials and Methods: In this in vitro study, forty extracted human single-rooted mandibular premolars were used. Pre instrumentation CBCT of all teeth were taken, canal curvatures were calculated, and the samples were randomly divided into two groups with ten samples in each group: Group 1–Protaper gold, Group 2–Wave on..
