Abstract

Objective: The aim of this study was to compare the accuracy of three electronic apex locators (EALs) (Propex Pixi, Mini Root ZX, Raypex 5) in determining working length (WL) under different environments (existence of blood-pulp/sodium hypochlorite in root canal space) using micro-computed tomography (micro-CT) measurements.
