Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is It is published monthly.

Abstract

Aim: This study aims to evaluate the anatomical features and prevalence of C-shaped roots and longitudinal grooves in mandibular first and second permanent teeth using cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT).
Material and Methods: CBCT records of first and second mandibular teeth from 839 patients who applied to the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology between 2011 and 2018 were used. The CBCT examination was performed at five different axial levels and the mandibular molars were classified as types of longitudinal groove and C-shape according to the Fan criteria. Differences between genders, age groups, left and right side and type of tooth were determined.
Result: A total of 2903 teeth (1321 first molars and 1582 second molar) from 839 patients were included in the study. C-shaped canals were found in mandibular first molar teeth with a prevalence of 0.15%, while 4.1% in mandibular second molar teeth. Only two mandibular first molars exhibited C-shaped canal. Female patients had a higher prevalence than males. Longitudinal grooves were most commonly found lingual surface.
Conclusions: The occurence of C-shaped canals in mandibular first and second molars among Turkish population was generally less than in other populations. CBCT is a valuable tool to evaluate the C-shaped root canal configuration in vivo.
Keywords: Cone-beam computed tomography; C-shaped canal; mandibular molar
