Research: Comparison of Canal Transportation in Glide Path Files

Paleker F, Van der vyver PJ. Comparison of Canal Transportation and Centering Ability of K-files, ProGlider File, and G-Files: A Micro-Computed Tomography Study of Curved Root Canals. J Endod. 2016;42(7):1105-9.

This study compared the centering ability and apical canal transportation of K-files (KF), ProGlider (PG), and G-Files (GF) using micro-computed tomography to analyze curved canals following glide path preparation. The results indicated that ProGlider glide path files created a more centered preparation than “G” and “K” files and remained more centered at certain locations in canals.
