Objective: This study attempted to compare the shaping abilities of the 2Shape, Neolix and Pro Taper Next rotary NiTi systems in terms of canal transportation and centering ability by cone beam computed tomography.
Methods: Mesiobuccal canals of fifty-seven first mandibular molar teeth with an angle of curvature ranging from 20ℴ to 40ℴ according to Schneider’s technique were randomly assigned into three groups according to the rotary system used (n = 19). Canals were scanned using cone beam computed tomography before and after preparation to evaluate canal transportation and centering ratio at 3, 6, and 9 mm from the apex.
Results: There was no statistically significant difference in amounts of mesiodistal canal transportation between the three groups at the apical, middle and coronal thirds. There was no statistically significant difference in the centric ratio between the three groups at the coronal and apical thirds. At the middle third, the 2Shape and ProTaper Next showed higher statistically significantly median centric ratio in the mesiodistal direction than Neolix group.
Conclusions: The three systems showed comparable performance regarding the degree of canal transportation and centering ability.
