Evaluation of Sterility of Various Commercially Available Endodontic Instruments - A Pilot Study
Rajalakshmi Rakshanaa.T.V, Dr. Jayalakshmi
AIM: The aim of this research is to compare and determine whether new endodontic files, as supplied in packages from the manufacturer, are sterile. OBJECTIVE: The main objective is to test and compare the sterility levels of new endodontic files with and without sterilisation before using. BACKGROUND: Most of the dentists directly use the packaged new endodontic files into the patients mouth assuming that they are sterile. Even though the new files are completely packaged, one should not draw a conclusion that all of the packaged instruments are sterile. Thus this study is to compare the sterility of various commercially available, unused endodontic files REASON: Sometimes unused or packaged files may be contaminated with various microorganisms.The goal of instrument sterilisation in dentistry is to protect patients from cross contamination via instruments. Thus, utmost care should be taken to clean and sterilise each and every instrument before it is used in patients.
