Background and Aim: The aim of this study is to evaluate the apical debris extrusion amounts and preparation times of four different nickel-titanium systems with a similar cross-section design—Mtwo, RECIPROC, RECIPROC blue, and VDW.ROTATE. Materials and Methods: Eighty human mandibular central incisors were divided into four equal groups (n = 20). The test apparatus was inserted into an assembly that provided root canal temperature. Preparation times were recorded using a stopwatch, and the amount of extruded debris was collected in pre-weighed Eppendorf tubes. After drying, the net amount was determined by subtracting the previously measured Eppendorf tube weights from the total weight. Results: The Mtwo had the largest amount of debris, but there was no significant difference among the other groups. The VDW.ROTATE completed the preparation in a significantly shorter time than the RECIPROC blue and Mtwo. Conclusion: Compared to other files, the Mtwo sequence produced significantly more debris and required significantly more time to complete the whole root canal preparation.
