Comparison of the Effect of Root Canal Preparation by Using WaveOne and ProTaper on Postoperative Pain: A Randomized Clinical Trial

By Dr. Barry H. Korzen | Posted June 26, 2015

In the May 2015 issue of the Journal of Endodontics Nekkoofar et al reported on a randomized clinical trial that studied postoperative pain following endodontic instrumentation comparing a reciprocating system (Wave One) and a system that utilizes full rotation (ProTaper).

Post-treatment pain is a consequence that can create increased anxiety and foster poor relations between practitioners and their patients who expect that the treatment they received was to eliminate their discomfort, not to prolong it.

This study published in the May 2015 issue of the Journal of Endodontics compares the incidence and intensity of postoperative pain after use of a reciprocating system and a rotary system to prepare root canals.

Predictive models of pain following root canal treatment: a prospective clinical study

By Dr. Barry H. Korzen | Posted July 23, 2013

Predictive formulae for the incidence, the intensity and the duration of post-endodontic pain were generated and validated taking account of the interrelation of multiple concomitant clinical factors. 500 one-visit root canal treatments performed on patients by an endodontist failed to establish a predictive model for triggering post-endodontic pain.
