Finally, concerning the type of the root, significant differences in the outcomes between molar roots (60.8%) and the other two root categories (84.7% for anterior roots: p=0.015 and 79.6% for premolar roots: p=0.011) observed in this survey have also been reported in previous studies (13, 14), indicating that endodontic treatment in molars is more challenging due to the complexity of their root canal morphology and its possible variations.
