ABSTRACT:Background and Objective:
Varied morphology of primary teeth makes it difficult to provide complete three-dimensional obturation of the canal with hermetic seal. 3-dimensional volume measurements of quality of obturation with the help of cone bean computer tomography (CBCT) is the possibility without sectioning the specimens. CBCT is a new tool which gives accuracy of 3 dimensional view of quality of images. There is paucity in literature about the analysis Of Three Different Obturation Techniques in Primary Teeth Using CBCT. Hence this study undertaken to evaluate the efficiency of 3 different obturation techniques; Motor driven lentulo spirals, Hand held Lentulo spiral, Endodontic pressure syringe in primary teeth using CBCT.
Materials and Methods: 60 primary anterior and posterior teeth were obturated using three different obturation techniques; Motor driven lentulospiral, Hand held lentulospiral and Endodontic pressure syringe and volumetric analysis of obturation was done using CBCT. The results obtained were subjected to Pearson’s, chi-square test, Kruskal Wallis & Mann Whitney u test.
Results: Motor driven Lentulo spiral group led to better quality of filling resulting in 92% post obturation volume in anterior teeth and 85.5% in posterior compared to Hand held Lentulo spiral group showed 85.5% in anterior teeth and 81.5% in posterior teeth and
Conclusion: In our study Motor driven Lentulo spiral has better quality of filling than Hand held lentulospiral and Endodontic pressure syringe. Further studies are required to support our
