|Estimated Study Completion Date :||April 30, 2020|
|Experimental: Root canal disinfection with XP-endo Finisher||
Device: Root canal disinfection with XP-endo Finisher
The XP-Endo® finisher will be used next to the X-Smart Plus endodontic motor, with speed settings at 800rpm and torque at 1 N.cm. Irrigation with 17% EDTA and 2.5% NaOCl will be performed in three cycles of one minute each. In each cycle the XP-Endo will be used in the working length in continuous and slow movements of entrance and exit, with amplitude of 5mm, for a period of 1 minute, followed by new irrigation with 2.5ml of EDTA solution or hypochlorite of sodium 2,5%. Finally, the channel will be completely dry with absorbent paper tips
|Active Comparator: Root canal disinfection with passive ultrasonic irrigation||
Device: Root canal disinfection with passive ultrasonic irrigation
For cleaning using passive ultrasonic irrigation, the E1 Irrisonic tip (Helse Ultrasonic, Ribeirão Preto, SP), will be used with Jetlaxis Sonic BP LED (Schuster, Santa Maria, RS). The insert has a diameter equivalent to a manual file 20, with reduced taper (0.01). The power used will be 10%. With root canals flooded with 17% EDTA, the irrigation tips will be coupled to the ultrasound and 1mm shorter than the working length. These tips will be kept in the center of the canal avoiding contact with the dentin walls. The irrigation will be performed in three cycles, and in each cycle the irrigation tips will be activated for 1 minute followed by new irrigation with 2.5ml EDTA. The same procedure will be repeated with 2.5% NaoCl. Finally, the channel will be completely dry with absorbent paper tips.
- Periradicular repair [ Time Frame: 2 years ]This outcome will be evaluated radiographically by one calibrated examiner.
- Quality of endodontic treatment [ Time Frame: 2 years ]This outcome will be evaluated through a radiograph by one calibrated examiner.
