OBTURATION IN ENDODONTICS
The penultimate step in endodontic therapy is obturation or obliteration of the root canal with certain biocompatible and inert substitutes to completely seal the canal. This is followed by entrance filling and placement of a jacket crown over the endodontically treated tooth. An ideal obturation of the root canal should result in a hermetic seal.
What are the materials used in dental obturation?
Root canal obturation materials include the primary root canal filling materials and root canal sealers. Spreaders and pluggers are instruments used to effectively seal the canal with the obturation materials. Absorbent paper points are used to remove moisture from the canal system which may hinder a proper seal. All these materials are used in combination to create a perfectly sealed root canal.
GUTTA PERCHA POINTS:
Various materials were being used in dentistry for total obturation of the root canal. These include amalgam, asbestos, balsam, cements, copper, gold foils, lead, paraffin, plaster of paris, resin, rubber, silver points etc. However, none of the materials mentioned above met the requirements of a root canal filling material. But the search for a suitable root canal obturating material came to an end with discovery of Gutta Percha. Edward Truman was the first person to introduce gutta percha to dentistry, as a temporary filling material. Ingle and Levine in 1959 proposed standardization of gutta percha points used in dentistry. GP points are composed of a gutta percha matrix, zinc oxide fillers, radiopacifiers, plasticizer waxes and resins. They are available in standard sizes and tapers analogous to the instruments used to shape the canal. For example, Dentsply Protaper gutta percha points are used in obturation of canals shaped using Dentsply Protaper files.
DENTAL PAPER POINTS:
The root canal must be completely free of moisture before obturation is initiated. Any residual moisture in the canal can hinder the ability of the obturating material and sealers to completely seal the walls of the canal. Such discrepancies may act as a nidus for bacterial colonization due to microleakage. Absorbent paper points are used to eliminate the moisture present in the root canals. They are available in standardized sizes to effectively absorb any residual moisture. In addition, they also provide preliminary guidance to asses the measurement of the root canal depth before obturation.
ROOT CANAL SEALANTS:
Root canal sealants are materials used in conjunction with biologically acceptable obturating materials to establish an adequate seal of the canal. The types of sealers available are zinc oxide eugenol based, calcium hydroxide based, glass ionomer based or resin based. The sealers are coated along the walls of the canal before initiating obturation. The core filling materials are coated the sealers before placing them into the canal. This further aids in creating an impervious seal, and filling any discrepancies between the canal and the core filling material.
SPREADERS & PLUGGERS:
Spreaders are tapered, long pointed instruments that are used to compress the gutta percha cones towards the apical constriction. The are also used to laterally condense the cones to create space for the accessory cones. Spreaders can be of two types; one with a handle known as hand spreaders and smaller variants called finger spreaders.
Pluggers are long, blunt and flat tipped blade instruments used in the vertical condensation technique. They are also used for plugging of gutta percha at the end of all other obturation techniques. They are available as hand pluggers, with a handle or finger pluggers.
