SmartPrep is a rotating instrument for dentin caries excavation made from a special polymer. The manufacturer's product information stated that SmartPrep removes carious dentin selectively. This in vitro study compared the efficiency of SmartPrep with conventional tungsten carbide bud burs. Fifty extracted teeth were split in the center of a carious lesion. The 100 specimens were randomly divided into five groups. Five dentists were asked to excavate 10 teeth each: one half with SmartPrep and… CONTINUE READING
