Postendodontic Pain on Using Max-i-Probe vs NaviTip as Irrigation Needles

2019-10-15 11:11:25 | BioPortfolio


The aim of this prospective, randomized, clinical trial was to evaluate the effect of the side-vented Max-i-Probe versus the end-vented NaviTip as endodontic needles during syringe irrigation on post-operative pain in adult patients with symptomatic irreversible pulpitis in posterior mandibular teeth.


The aim of this prospective, randomized, clinical trial was to evaluate the effect of the side-vented Max-i-Probe versus the end-vented NaviTip as endodontic needles during syringe irrigation on post-operative pain in adult patients with symptomatic irreversible pulpitis in posterior mandibular teeth. Medical and dental history was obtained from all participants in this trial and clinical examination for teeth was performed. Participants with symptomatic irreversible pulpitis were included. After access cavity preparation, participants were randomly assigned to one of the following groups: experimental group (Max-i-Probe) or control group (NaviTip). One-visit root canal treatment was performed . Each patient received a 48-h diary to record postoperative pain. Post-operative pain was measured at the following time points: 4, 12, 24 and 48 hours after root canal treatment.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Inflammation of the DENTAL PULP, usually due to bacterial infection in dental caries, tooth fracture, or other conditions causing exposure of the pulp to bacterial invasion. Chemical irritants, thermal factors, hyperemic changes, and other factors may also cause pulpitis.

A type of scanning probe microscopy in which a probe systematically rides across the surface of a sample being scanned in a raster pattern. The vertical position is recorded as a spring attached to the probe rises and falls in response to peaks and valleys on the surface. These deflections produce a topographic map of the sample.

A scanning probe microscopy technique that uses an ultramicroelectrode as the scanning probe that simultaneously records changes in electrochemical potential as it scans thereby creating topographical images with localized electrochemical information.

A technique with which an unknown region of a chromosome can be explored. It is generally used to isolate a locus of interest for which no probe is available but that is known to be linked to a gene which has been identified and cloned. A fragment containing a known gene is selected and used as a probe to identify other overlapping fragments which contain the same gene. The nucleotide sequences of these fragments can then be characterized. This process continues for the length of the chromosome.

A genus of gram-negative, anaerobic, rod-shaped bacteria isolated from the bovine RUMEN, the human gingival sulcus, and dental PULPITIS infections.
