Abstract

Aim: The aim of the present study was to clinically compare the postoperative pain after root canal preparation using M-pro rotary system and ProTaper Next rotary system in molars with symptomatic irreversible pulpitis.

Methods: A total of 50 patients with symptomatic irreversible pulpitis were included in the study. After clinical and radiographic examination, patients were assigned randomly into two groups (n = 25). In (Group A), root canals were instrumented with M-Pro rotary files. In (Group B), root canals were instrumented with ProTaper Next rotary files. All teeth were treated in a single visit. Pain was recorded by the Numerical Rating Scale preoperatively and at 6, 12, 24, 48, and 72 hours postoperatively. Placebo tablets were given to the patients to be taken in the case of mild pain and an analgesic was prescribed in case of an emergency. All demographic data, pain scores and number of analgesics tablets taken were collected from the patients. Data were analyzed using Chi-square test and Mann-Whitney U test.

Results: Results showed no statistically significant difference between the 2 groups regarding the postoperative pain or analgesic intake at all follow-up time intervals (P-value >0.05). There was a significant reduction in pain levels at all post-instrumentation follow up periods compared to preoperative pain level in both M-Pro and ProTaper Next groups (P-value < 0.0001).

Conclusions: Postoperative pain resulting from the use of M-Pro rotary files was comparable to ProTaper Next rotary files and the pain intensity gradually decreased by time following endodontic treatment in both groups.
