Aim: This study compared the weight & radiographic appearance of ca(oh)2 delivered into standardized, minimally & fully prepared canals. Materials & Methods: An injection system, an endodontic flex o file rotated counterclock wise direction, Lentulo spiral (maillefer, Ballalgues, Switzerland) & −04 Rotary niti files (Protaper, Dentsply, Maillefer, Switzerland) in an anticlock wise direction were used in this study. Two extracted human second mandibular premolars with single canals were prepared to an MAF # 25 and the other till #40. Results: The results of our study showed that lenulospiral achieved the maximum fills in the minimal & maximum prepared canals followed by injection system, rotary & k flex. Conclusion: All delivery techniques deliver near optimal weight of ca(oh)2 in the completely prepared canal. Complete instrumentation is needed to obtain optimal delivery of ca(oh)2.
