Sixty palatal roots of extracted first maxillary molars were selected. The samples were prepared with ProTaper Universal and then randomly divided into two groups (n = 30). In groups A and B, the root canals were filled employing lateral compaction of gutta-percha/AH Plus and GuttaFlow2, respectively. The samples in each group were randomly divided into three subgroups (n = 10). Groups A1 and B1 were retreated using Reciproc.

The purpose of this review article is to examine the etiology, incidence and classification of white spot lesions in association with their prevention and treatment methods. White spot lesions are opacities that occur by demineralization of enamel under the surface and cause esthetic problems. Orthodontic treatment increases the risk of white spot lesion occurrence by creating areas difficult to clean and prone to plaque accumulation around orthodontic attachments. Therefore, application of suit...
