Room: Exhibit Hall

Introduction: Canal preparation is an important step of root canal treatment that influences the efficacy of all subsequent procedures. The aim of this study was to evaluate and to compare XP-3D Shaper’s (XPS) (Brasseler, USA) shaping ability with TRUShape (TRS), ProTaper Next (PTN) and WaveOne Gold (WOG) (Dentsply Sirona, USA) systems by evaluating micro-computed tomographic imaging (μCT). Methods: Phase 1 - Six moderately curved distal roots of mandibular molars with single oval canals were selected. Scans with a μCT at 21 µm nominal voxel size were taken before (T0) and after canals were instrumented with XPS following manufacturer’s instructions (T5) and after additional 10 (T15) and 20 (T25) long strokes. Morphological aspects and unprepared surface areas were analyzed. Phase 2 - Based in the same criteria, 24 roots were selected and scanned. Samples were divided into four groups and instrumented using XPS, TRS, PTN and WOG systems. Postoperative scans were analyzed and data were compared using one-way ANOVA with Tukey’s multiple comparisons test (GraphPad Prism 6.2, USA). The level of statistical significance was set at p<0.05. Results: XPS significantly reduced the amount of overall untouched areas at T5 (9%) and T15 (4%) (p<0.001). XPS resulted in significantly less overall untouched areas (4%) than PTN (17%) and WOG (14%) (p<0.05), but not between XPS and TRS (13%), and between TRS, PTN and WOG (p>0.05). Conclusions: Additional long strokes with XPS enhance its instrumentation capacity by reducing the untouched surfaces. Also, within the limitations of the study, XPS reduced the amount of untouched areas compared to PTN and WOG.
