Abstract

During the obturation procedure of the root canals system is important that the filling substance presents among its qualities biocompatibility, sealing and that it can be dimensionally stable. There is a flow of fluids and microorganisms in the apical and coronary area, that can cause the contamination of the root canal or serve as nutriment to bacteria that can have remains after chemical and mechanical preparation, this situation will lead to failure to the endodontic treatment. The materials and methods  used to the execution of obturation have been largely studied in order to get better results, what still representing a great challenge in Endodontics. The main purpose of this research was to evaluate the comparative studies between the obturator system of root canals Resilon/Epiphany® and the Gutta-percha/cement, pointing which of them presents best sealing capacity. The results showed that, concerning to apical sealing, Resilon/Epiphany® can substitute the association of Gutta/percha convention, however comparative studies of other qualities of the system filled are indispensable.

Keywords

Resilon/Epiphany®, gutta-percha, sealing, systematic review.

Resumo

Ao se obturar o sistema de canais radiculares deseja-se que o material obturador apresente entre suas propriedades biocompatibilidade, selamento e que seja estável dimensionalmente. Sabe-se que tanto da região apical, como da coronária fluidos e microorganismo fluem, o que pode ocasionar uma contaminação do canal radicular ou então servir de nutriente para as bactérias que possam ter ficado após o preparo químico mecânico, levando-se assim ao insucesso do tratamento endodôntico. Os materiais e métodos usados para execução da obturação têm sido amplamente estudados a fim de se conseguir os melhores resultados, o que ainda representa um grande desafio na Endodontia. O objetivo dessa revisão sistemática foi avaliar os estudos comparativos entre o sistema obturador de canais radiculares Resilon/Epiphany® e a Guta-percha/cimento, apontando qual deles apresentou melhor capacidade seladora. Os resultados mostraram que em se tratando de selamento apical o Resilon/Epiphany® pode substituir a associação Guta-percha/cimento, porém estudos comparativos das outras propriedades desse sistema obturador são imprescindíveis.
