Why it's called hydraulic condensation technique not a single cone technique as we often use just one cone during obturation?? And I know that we are doing this type of obturation technique with bioceramic sealer .

In reply to Mina Moheb Because large oval canals or highly tapered canals require more than one cone to fill. You place additional cones next to the main cone to occupy space and make sure you don't have voids in the bioceramic. So, even though most small canals end up being filled with one cone large canals require more than one and hence why this is not a "single cone" technique.

In reply to Mina Moheb Comes from Hydraulic Pressure created when synchronicity of shape/cone is created which results in some hydraulic focus pushing the cement laterally during the cementation of the gutta percha cone.
