To evaluate the weight of debris and irrigant volume extruded apically from root canals using the Revo-S system compared to that of ProTaper and HERO Shaper systems.Sixty single rooted teeth were selected and randomly divided into three groups. Each group was assigned to one of the three instrumentation systems: ProTaper, HERO Shaper and Revo-S system. The canals were irrigated with a total of 6 ml of distilled water using a conventional needle. Apically extruded debris and irrigant were collected and measured.
The mean and the standard deviation values of dry debris weight with ProTaper system, HERO Shaper system and the Revo-S system were 1.71 ± 0.11 mg, 1.63 ± 0.12 mg and 1.56 ± 0.08 mg respectively and the mean irrigant volume and the standard deviation values were 17.5 ± 2.4 ml, 15.8 ± 1.8 ml and 14.4 ± 3.1 ml respectively. The differences between the three groups were not statistically significant (P > .05).
The Revo-S system was comparable to the ProTaper and HERO shaper systems in terms of apically extruded debris and irrigant.
