AIM To compare the results of a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation of the irrigant flow within a prepared root canal, during final irrigation with a syringe and a needle, with experimental high-speed visualizations and theoretical calculations of an identical geometry and to evaluate the effect of off-centre positioning of the needle inside the root canal. METHODOLOGY A CFD model was created to simulate irrigant flow from a side-vented needle inside a prepared root canal… CONTINUE READING
