Introduction: “In vitro” studies seek to simulate actual biological conditions in the laboratory and providing principles to be studied later, to facilitate the development of new techniques of root instrumentation in primary teeth and to ensure the integrity and function of the element. Aim: This study aimed to demonstrate the technological advances in endodontics by endodontic treatment performed on artificial primary teeth using a rotary instrumentation system and reciprocation. Materials and methods: Instrumentation of the root canal was performed via a manual, rotatory and Reciproc system. Results: The rotatory systems can facilitate endodontic treatment in one session. Conclusion: These procedures become increasingly easy and rapid with the help of technological advances in dentistry.
