Abstract

Dental anatomy plays a crucial role in human body as it helps in survival. The after treatment protocol in the root canal treatment (RCT) for improper functioning of the anatomy is major challenge for dentists. RCT deals with repairing and saving the tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. The RCT, if analyzed mechanically; various factors governs efficacy of the treatment out of which incomplete filling and sealing of 3D root canal space with suitable biomaterial against bacterial growth is major parameter. Today, thanks to modern technologies satisfactory results are obtained, but the cost of treatment is substantially increased which is unaffordable. Thus, a survey was carried by visiting doctors practicing for more than 25 years in conservative dentistry to recent students admitted to dental surgery in various colleges to understand tools/aids used during RCT with hypothesis of developing low cost obturation device for augmenting the dental device feasibility. The success rate of obturation device is high over hand pluggers; but the cost parameter limits the usage of same. The survey also coveys that complete sealing is also not possible with hand pluggers as well as existing available aids, and thus there is a need to develop a low cost obturation device using dual energy (low operating frequency and heat) source for increasing efficacy of treatment. To test feasibility of the collected data, it’s being analyzed through p-test (p>0.05) for selected parameters and correlation was found to be statistically significant.
