Aim: T assess the root canal transportation caused by these rotary NiTi reciprocating file systems using 3D cone beam computed tomography
Method: This experimental study was conducted on 60 samples of rotary NiTi reciprocating file systems using CBCT. The extent of canal transportation and the centering ratio was analyzed using independent sample t test. The significance level was set at 95%.
Results: Mean apical canal transportation was lower in wave one Gold groups as compare to Reciproc (0.8724±0.04SD vs 0.9463±0.02SD, p=0.000). Mean apical canal transportation at 5 mm was lower in wave one gold group as compare to reciproc blue group (0.5610±0.02SD vs 0.7253±0.06SD, p=0.000). Mean apical canal transportation at 8mm was lower in wave one group as compare to reciproc blue (0.358±0.03SD vs 0.5766±0.10SD, p=0.000).
Conclusion: Wave one Gold had high centering ability and lower canal transportation as compare to Reciproc Blue single file system. CBCT is an efficient method of understanding Canal transportation
