Abstract

Background: Diaphonization is a known method wherein the tooth model is made clear to visualize the root canal morphology. The method provides a 3D view of the root canal without much damage to the exterior of the tooth. Hence it is one of the preferred tools for teaching even till date. Material And Methods: 20 teeth were cleared to study the root canal morphology. They were divided into two groups and cleared with Methyl Salicylate and Eugenol. Cleared teeth were evaluated for transparency and haziness in the root canal. Result: Teeth cleared with Eugenol showed better transparency and less haziness as compared to Methyl salicylate. Conclusion: Diaphonized teeth models are still one of the preferred teaching aids for root canal morphologies. Eugenol is a better clearing agent than Methyl Salicylate.
