Room: Exhibit Hall

Introduction: Components in root canal therapy include instrumentation, irrigation and obturation. The purpose of this retrospective study to assess outcome of cases treated by undergraduate dental students using, a specific instrumentation protocol, a specific irrigation protocol and bioceramic obturation. Methods and Materials: All patients were treated in the undergraduate Endodontic Clinic. Teeth were instrumented using maximum safe apical size BIORACE files, a specific final irrigation protocol with a 30 g needle included: 3% NaOCl, 18% EDTA, 2% Chlorhexidine and canals obturated with a bioceramic coated and impregnated single gutta-percha master cone with a bioceramic sealer. Results: A total of 51 patients were consecutively recalled. Among them, 62 procedures were evaluated, each receiving a clinical exam and radiograph. Number of months at recall ranged between 6 months to 21 months.  RCT procedures included: Anterior (n=28), Premolar (n=19), Molar (n=9), ReTx Anterior (n=1), ReTx Premolar (n=4), ReTx Molar (n=1).  Radiographic findings:  (1) 38 teeth had NO LESION present at Tx; 38 teeth had NO LESION present at RECALL (2) 24 teeth had a LESION present at Tx; 24 teeth demonstrated radiographic “complete healing” or “in the process of healing."Conclusion: Undergraduate dental students treating endodontic cases attained notable clinical success when using very specific protocols.
