Kungwani ML, Prasad KP, Khiyani TS - J Conserv Dent (2014)

Bottom Line: The statistical significance was set at P < 0.05 and the analysis was performed using SPSS version 11.0 software.No statistical significant difference was found at 3 mm level between the groups.Group I had significantly less debris at 1 mm level.

ABSTRACT

Aim and objective: The aims were to evaluate the root canal debris removal after irrigation with EndoVac system and to compare its efficacy with Max-i-Probe needles.

Materials and methods: Fifteen matched pairs of single canalled vital teeth with mature apices indicated for extraction were selected. After working length determination and biomechanical preparation, the teeth in the right quadrant were irrigated with EndoVac system and with Max-i-Probe needles in the left quadrant using 3% NaOCl and 17% ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid. Teeth were extracted and marked at 1 and 3 mm from working length and decalcified in Kristenson's solution. Stained histologic slides were observed under trinocular research microscope. Wilcoxon signed-rank test was used for statistical analysis. The statistical significance was set at P < 0.05 and the analysis was performed using SPSS version 11.0 software.

Results: No statistical significant difference was found at 3 mm level between the groups. Group I had significantly less debris at 1 mm level.

Conclusion: EndoVac performed better in removing debris from the apical thirds of root canals.

Mentions: Six micron histologic sections were made from each root and stained. Each slide contained serial sections of either 1 or 3 mm level of one of the experimental teeth. Before viewing the sections, any identification on the slide was masked. The sections on each glass slide were compared by using a trinocular research microscope at ×4 magnification. The section containing the greatest amount of canal debris was digitally photographed [Figures 1 and 2]. All images were analyzed by Image Analysis Software (Lynx Biolux [Lawrence and Mayo, India Pvt. Ltd.]). The amount of debris left in the canals was quantified as a percentage of the canal lumen area. The data were statistically analyzed to compare the percentage of remaining debris between the two irrigation techniques at each of the two levels using Wilcoxon signed-rank test. The statistical significance was set at P < 0.05 and the analysis was performed using SPSS version 11.0 software [SPSS Inc., Chicago]. The methodology adopted by us was based on studies conducted by Nielsen and Baumgartner[11] and Siu and Baumgartner.[12]
