Evaluation of effect of removing smear layer by two ways on the quality of apical sealing of root canals obturated using ADSEAL sealer: An in vitro study
AUTHOR(S): Dr. Humam Alesali and Dr. Khitam Almarrawi
The Aim of this Study is to evaluate the effect of the method of the removing of smear layer on the Quality of Apical Sealing of Root Canals.
Materials and Methods: The sample included 60 single teeth with single canal which were divided into 3 experimental groups (n = 20 teeth each) according to the smear layer removal method as following: (group 1: ER –YAG, group 2: XP–Endo Finisher File System, group 3: control group).
The teeth were obturated using Gutta Percha and AD SEAL Sealer, The apical sealing was measured by endoscope after making longitudinal sections.
The data obtained was statistically analyzed using One-Way ANOVA and Bonferroni.
The results show that the teeth that we removed smear layer in it with ER-YAG achieved The same apical sealing as the teeth in which we used XP Endo Finisher while both methods showed better apical sealing than teeth with smear layer not removed.
