In reply to Mina Moheb Sure, Resin, ZOE, and Bioceramic all have flow rates that allow them to pass through some of these areas... of course, that's provided these areas are clean of debris and have not been packed with smear layer during instrumentation. The Bioceramic, although less radioopaque will have a better chance of flowing in these areas through capillary action since it's hydrophilic compared to resin/ZOE, which are hydrophobic, and because these areas invariably contain some aqueous fluids. Hope this helps. :)
