Title: Análise comparativa entre os tempos gastos na apicetomia por ponta diamantada e pelos lasers CO2 e Er:YAG na apicectomia
Issue Date: 2005
Abstract: Objective: The aim of this research was to compare the time spent with the use of diamond tips and lasersof CO2 and Er:YAG in apicoectomies of extracted human teeth. Methodology: 36 human cuspid teeth wereendodontically treated and randomly divided into three groups according to the cut instrument. Theapicoectomy was performed at 90 degrees and 3mm from the extreme teeth apex. Results: Through an averageanalysis, the lowest time for apicoectomy happens in the diamond tip group. Statistical analyses showeddifferences (p<0.01) among bur and laser groups. Conclusion: Apart from statistical differences among groupsthese represents only a few seconds. It was concluded that the three methods allow the surgeon agility inthe realization of the periapical surgical procedures.
