Comparative evaluation of the shaping ability of single file system versus multiple file system in root canals of mandibular molars: An in-vitro study

AUTHOR(S): Dr. Mohd Sajad, Dr. Anies Ahmed, Dr. Mubeena Sagar and Dr. Kamaljeet Manhas
ABSTRACT:The aim of the study was to compare the shaping ability of two different Nickel-Titanium file systems in mesial roots of mandibular first molars.
Methods: Fourty freshly extracted mandibular molars were used for the study. A muffle-block was constructed as given by Aviad et al. [8] Photographs were taken of all three cross-sections of each tooth using a DSLR Camera (Nikon Digital, Tokyo, Japan) at a fixed position. The specimens were randomly divided into the following two groups: Group l: Prepared using Wave One rotary files. Group 2: Prepared using Pro-Taper rotary files.
Results: In our study the Wave One file system exhibited better centering ability than Pro-Taper Universal file system (p<0.05) at all the three different locations coronal, middle and apical thirds of the root canals.
Conclusion: It can be concluded that Wave One file system exhibited better centering ability and required very less time to prepare the curved canals compared with Pro-Taper file system.
