Abstract

The aim of this study was to investigate whether there was a correlation between the presence or absence of nutrient canals in intraoral periapical radiographs (IOPAR) and the two most common systemic diseases, hypertension and diabetes mellitus. The study included 150 patients selected due to the inclusion criteria detailed in the methods section. The results revealed that although there was no statistically significant correlation between the presence of nutrient canals and the two systemic diseases studied, their presence on IOPARs should raise the suspicion and warrant further investigation.
