Abstract: The aim of the present study was to evaluate the percentage frequency of dentinal micro-cracks observed after root canal preparation with TRUShape and Self-Adjusting File (SAF) systems by means of micro computed tomography imaging analysis. A conventional full-sequence rotary system (BioRace) and a single-file reciprocation system (Reciproc) were used as reference techniques for comparison because of their known assertive cutting efficiency. Methods: Forty anatomically matched mandibular incisors were selected, scanned at a resolution of 14.25 mu m, and assigned to 4 experimental groups (n = 10), according to the preparation protocol: TRUShape, SAF, BioRace, and Reciproc systems. After the experimental procedures, the specimens were scanned again, and the registered preoperative and postoperative cross-section images of the roots (n = 70,030) were screened to identify the presence of dentinal micro-cracks. Results: Overall, dentinal defects were observed in 28,790 cross-section images (41.11%). In the TRUShape, SAF, BioRace, and Reciproc groups, dentinal micro-cracks were visualized in 56.47% (n = 9842), 42.38% (n = 7450), 32.90% (n = 5826), and 32.77% (n = 5672) of the slices, respectively. All dentinal defects observed in the postoperative data sets were already present in the corresponding preoperative images. Conclusions: None of the preparation systems induced the formation of new dentinal micro-cracks.
