Clinical Efficiency of Three Caries Removal Systems: Rotary Excavation, Carisolv, and Papacarie
Methods: This controlled, split-mouth study with a cross-over design compared three caries removal methods in the primary molars of 50 five- to 12-year-old children.
Results: The rotary method was the most efficient and least time-consuming (P<0.001). Pain perception, however, was highest with this method (P<0.05). Papacarie exhibited a higher efficiency and required fewer applications than Carisolv (P<0.01). The Papacarie method was the most preferred, and the rotary method the least-preferred (P<0.05).
Conclusions: Chemo-mechanical caries removal may be a promising alternative treatment procedure, particularly for anxious young patients.
