Abstract

The success of root canal therapy is dependent on the clinician’s knowledge of root canal morphology with goal to precisely locate all canals, properly clean, shape and obturate the canal space. The aim in our study was to to determine the morphologic shape and position of the root apex and the major foramen in maxillary teeth. A total of 100 maxillary human frontal maxillary teeth with completely formed apices were evaluated. Each root specimen was measured at each root apex by using a calibrated microscope at magnification of 20X. The anatomic parameters evaluated were the shapes of peripheral contours of major apical foramen (rounded, oval, asymmetric, semilunar) and the root apex (rounded, flat, beveled, elliptical). The location was recorded and classified as center, buccal, lingual, mesial, or distal surface for both root apex and the major apical foramen.The most common morphology of the root apex in incisives and canines was the round shape. The most common shape of the major foramen in all groups was round, followed by oval. The root apex was most commonly located in the center in all groups followed by distal and buccal locations.
