Objective: The purpose of the present In vitro study was to evaluate the amount of touched canal walls of the XP Shaper single file system as compared to One Shape single file system.
Methods: In this study, 16 human permanent mandibular first molars with single oval canaled distal roots were selected, then randomly and equally divided into 2 groups: Group 1 (XPS) and Group 2 (OS). The molars distal halves were separated, then mounted into epoxy resin blocks which were sectioned using ISOMET sectioning saw. The root sections were imaged with a stereomicroscope before and after instrumentation. Pre- and post-instrumentation scans were superimposed and evaluated using AutoCAD analytical software.
Results: The amount of touched canal walls results showed a statistically significant difference between Group 1 (XPS) and Group 2 (OS) in the coronal, middle and apical thirds (p<0.001). Likewise, the total amount of touched canal walls was significantly higher in Group 1 (XPS) than in Group 2 (OS) (p<0.001). Conclusion: XP Shaper seems to be superior to One Shape rotary file in addressing the 3-dimensional structure of the root canal space of oval canals.
