In vitro” studies seek to simulate actual biological conditions in the laboratory 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, this study aimed to demonstrate the technological advances in endodontics through endodontic treatment performed on artificial primary teeth using a rotary instrumentation system and reciprocation. Instrumentation of the root canal was performed via a manual, rotary, and Reciproc system. Results showed that current systems can facilitate endodontic treatment in one session. These procedures become increasingly easy with the help of technological advances in dentistry.
