Abstract

Aim To verify the root canal treatment quality performed by dental school students with NiTi instrument in reciprocating motion. Methodology 18 patients were enrolled and 28 root canals were shaped and sealed by reciprocating NiTi Instruments (WaveOne - Maillefer - Baillegues - SUI) and pre-heated guttapercha (Thermafill-Maillefer - Baillegues - SUI). Radiographs were taken before, during and at the end of the endodontic treatment. Results Root fillings length was adequate in 26 of the 28 root canals evaluated (92,86%). 19 of them (73,08%) presented an extrusion of the endodontic sealer. No instrument breakage was reported. Conclusions In this very preliminar study, undergraduate students' use of NiTi instruments in reciprocating motion might be a suitable alternative to traditional root canal therapy with low incidence of adverse effects.
