Abstract


The aim of this study was to evaluate the periapical condition and the quality of root canal fi llings accomplished by undergraduate students. The sample was constituted by 156 fi lled root canals of one-root and multi-root teeth whose treatment conclusion had happened at least two years before. Periapical radiographies were evaluated by three calibrated endodontists. The periapical condition was classifi ed as having or not having periapical lesion. The qualityof the root fi lling was determined using two parameters: the relationship between the length of the fi lling with the extension of the canal and the quality of the condensation of the fi lling material. The results showed that 75 (48%) root canals were classifi ed as possessing satisfactory treatment quality. In 101 root canals (64.5%), the presence of hard layer was observed, characterizing a normal periapical condition.
