Katiyar A, Gupta S, Gupta K, Sharma K, Tripathi B, Sharma N. Comparative Evaluation of Chemo-mechanical and Rotary-mechanical Methods in Removal of Caries with Respect to Time Consumption and Pain Perception in Pediatrc Dental Patients. Int J Clin Pediatr Dent 2021; 14 (1):115-119.
Aim and objective:
• To compare the clinical efficiency in removal of caries by the two different methods of caries removal.
• To compare the treatment time between chemomechanical and rotary mechanical methods of caries removal.
• To compare the pain perception of the patient during the two different methods (chemomechanical and rotary mechanical) of dentin caries removal.
Materials and methods: The Carisolv system for caries removal, consisting of a solvent gel and a specially designed hand instrument, as compared to the conventional method of caries removal, i.e., Airotor. Sixty patients in the age-group of 6–14 years, having Black\'s class I dentinal caries with the cavity in the molars, were enrolled for the study.
Results: The time for caries removal with Carisolv and Airotor was, respectively, 7.17 ± 1.57 and 8.00 ± 1.56 minutes. Thus, the mean time taken was also significantly higher in group II as compared to group I (t = 4.805; p < 0.001).
