Quality of obturation achieved by an endodontic core-carrier system with crosslinked gutta-percha carrier in single-rooted canals

Li GH, et al. – The present study examined the quality of obturation in root canals obturated by GuttaCore, a gutta–percha–based core–carrier system with a cross–linked thermoset gutta–percha carrier, by comparing the incidence of gaps and voids identified from similar canals obturated by cold lateral compaction or warm vertical compaction. Because of the similarity in obturation quality between GuttaCore and warm vertical compaction, practitioners may find the GuttaCore core–carrier technique a valuable alternative for obturation of oval–shaped canals.
