The purpose of this study was to gain insight into the background, experience, and habits of dentists residing in Saudi Arabia with regard to their NTRF usage parameters.
5 Percent of the "other specialty" group (prosthodontist, periodontist, pedo- dontist, orthodontist, oral surgeon, and others) who participated in our previous work, were NTRF users (13).
Having proper access entry for the NTRF is a critical step in root canal preparation, which aims to reduce unnecessary stresses on the rotary file; there- fore, our participants were asked to provide feedback about their access cavity technique while using NTRFs.
