Abstract

Aim: This study compared the efficacy of automated hydrodynamic irrigation kit (RinsEndo®) to that of manual irrigation in removing smear layer and debris from instrumented root canals. Methods: Seventy lower premolars were instrumented and divided according to the method of final irrigation into two experimental groups (n=30); Group A (RinsEndo) and Group B (manual irrigation) as well as a control group (n=10) that was irrigated using manual irrigation. In the experimental groups 5.25% NaOCI alone or in combination with 17% EDTA or 10% citric acid were used as final irrigating solutions while distilled water was used to irrigate the control group. Results: Stereomicroscopic and scanning electron microscopic examination revealed that RinsEndo group showed lower amounts of debris than manual irrigation at the middle and apical thirds of the canal. Moreover RinsEndo / citric acid showed the highest removal of smear layer followed by RinsEndo/ EDTA. Conclusion: RinsEndo was more efficient than manual irrigation in irrigating root canals. Keywords: Irrigation, RinsEndo, NaOCI, citric acid, EDTA, smear layer, debris.
