Comparison of quality of obturation and instrumentation time using different in primary molars
AUTHOR(S): Marwah Albarshah, Mohamad Hamdan and Khaled M Kabbesh
Cleaning and shaping plays a very important role in success of root canal procedures. There are various instrumentation techniques available for root canal preparation. Recently, an exclusive rotary file for root canal preparation of primary teeth has been introduced.
Materials and Methods: Forty‑five primary mandibular molars were randomly allotted to one of the three groups. Instrumentation was done using K‑files in Group 1; Protaper in Group 2; and Mtwo in Group 3. Instrumentation time was recorded. The canal filling quality was assessed as underfill, optimal fill, and overfill. Statistical analysis was done using Chi‑square, ANOVA, and post hoc Tukey test.
Results: No significant difference was observed in the quality of obturation among three groups. Intergroup comparison of the instrumentation time showed a statistically significant difference between the three groups.
Conclusion: The use of rotary instrumentation in primary teeth results in marked reduction in the instrumentation time and improves the quality of obturation.
