It is time to evolve over conventional techniques and rise to the next level of advanced root canal treatment. This Book justifies innovative, economical & efficient use of Heat + Sonic Vibration Technology for Obturation and the comparison of the same with other obturation techniques.One of the purposes of root canal treatment is to fill the root canal system in order to prevent re-infection. Obturation is the culmination of the endodontic triad. It marks the end point of the endodontic treatment sequence. But it is also the harbinger of holistic healing of peri-apical tissues. A hermetic seal initiates and encourages repair and regeneration. Hence 3-dimensional obturation of the canal space is provision of fluid tight seal with an inert, biocompatible material is the ultimate goal of endodontic therapy.
Although root canal treatment is a highly successful entity, 60% of endodontic failure occurs due to improper obturation. This statistic delineates the difficulty and complexity that the good obturation entails. The demanding nature of this vital steep has spawned not only numerous materials but also myriad techniques to achieve that ideal obturation. A thorough knowledge of all the Techniques is a must. This books is a one stop solution for problems regarding the numerous Rot Canal Obturation Procedures.
The root canal system has many variations in anatomy such as irregularly shaped canals, lateral and accessory canals, and a variety of fins which lead to difficulty in preparing the canals to form conducive to complete obturation with filling materials whenever a need for endodontic therapy arises. The final goal of endodontic treatment is to fill the entire root canal system and all its complex anatomic pathways completely and closely with non irritating hermetic sealing agents.The achievement of a “Hermetic seal” is often cited as the major goal of root canal treatment. As guttapercha is a benchmark for root canal obturation an attempt has been made in the form of a book to review the current dental literature of guttapercha and to discuss its forms, properties, its advantages along with its different techniques used for obturation of guttapercha.
The dental profession’s most important goal is to maintain the health and integrity of patient's dentition. Dental clinicians must recognize that a particular method of obturation can not satisfy every single case that requires endodontic therapy. This book is an attempt to shed light on various available techniques and materials of obturation which are consistent with the principles of clinical practice, i.e., to provide the best treatment for patients.
Achieving a three dimensional seal has been the aim of of dentists since the dawn of endodontics. This was not achievable until the advent of thermoplasticised obturation systems. This book has been written to provide a thorough understanding of various thermoplasticised obturation systems available in the market giving the reader an in depth knowledge of the various benefits of using these systems and also enlightening them about their various limitations.
This study was done to compare and evaluate the quality of obturation in simulated internal resorptive cavities using different gutta percha obturation techniques and also to compare radiographic and stereomicroscopic methods used to evaluate the quality of obturation. Thirty extracted maxillary central incisors were instrumented at the working length to a #50 file. The roots were sectioned transversely with a diamond disc at 7 mm from the anatomical apex. At the opening of the root canal of each section, hemicircular cavities were drilled with a round bur #5 with a stopper. The corresponding root sections were cemented with glue, thus obtaining root canals with similar cavities that simulated internal resorptions. The specimens were randomly separated into three groups of 10 each. The following obturation techniques were evaluated Group A : Hybrid technique (Combination of lateral and vertical compaction) Group B : Ultrasonic compaction (Satellac). Group C : Thermo plasticized gutta percha (Ultrafil) The teeth were then examined radiographically and stereomicroscopically.
Inspite of best bio-mechanical preparation and new obturation techniques being introduced, still in the present conditions and circumstances, no one obturation technique can fulfill all the requirements for an ideal obturation that can be used easily and mastered to treat all of the endodontic cases. These techniques have to be mastered and practiced before they are put into clinical practice. The new equipment and devices can render excellent results if mastered but can lead to serious consequences if used by unskilled clinicians. The transition is slow, but exciting, so clinician should understand the patient’s need and indication for particular technique and material used for the obturation of root canal space. So this book basically aims at reviewing and highlighting the obturation devices used during root canal treatment of teeth so to make the treatment more easy for patient and clinician as well and achieving high success rate.
