Abstract

Objective: To measure the intensity of post-operative pain after using two techniques for root canal treatment.

Study Design: Quasi-experimental study.

Place of Study and Duration: Operative Dentistry Department, Fatima Jinnah Dental College, Karachi Pakistan, from May to Oct 2019.

Methodology: The study was conducted on 60 patients referred to the Department of Endodontic, Fatima Jinnah Dental College. Enrolled patients were randomly divided into two groups (A and B) using the sealed envelope technique. Two different root canal file systems were used to assess the post-operative pain intensity in both groups.

Results: The post-operative pain intensity considerably decreased in both groups. The difference between the rotational and reciprocal techniques was found to be statistically insignificant (p=0.86) in the 6 hours (p=0.73) and 24 hours’ periods (p=0.147) between the instrumentation techniques. However, pain experienced in the 48 hours was statistically different between the two groups (p=0.03).

Conclusion: Post-operative pain is a consequence of both instrumentation techniques, which should be thoroughly investigated and assessed.
