Objective: This study aimed to analyze the presence of apical deviation according to the instrumentation technique and instruments used during mechanical preparation of root canals. Methods: It was carried out in vitro tests with the two types of preparation in root canals, in a total of 24 dental units divided into two groups according to the types of mechanical preparations made. Conclusion: At the end of the experiment it was observed that there was no significative difference between the two types of instrumental techniques. This suggests a greater attention to the alternate preparation due to its low cost, being possible to include it in CEOs (specialized dental clinics) of Ministry of Health – Brazil.
