Özet

Background/purpose: During root canal therapy, third roots of mandibular first molars (MFMs) provide an important route for bacterial leakage that can lead to root canal treatment failure and the need for additional surgical intervention. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate root and canal morphology of permanent MFMs in a Turkish population using cone beam computed tomography (CBCT).
