Root Canal Treatment is performed to save infected tooth. The study has been done to enhance the filling of Gutta Percha (material) in biomechanically prepared dental blocks (DENTSPLY) using vibratory energy during compaction. Two groups of samples, each containing ten blocks was obturated. First group samples were obturated with conventional down-pack technique (Heat & Compaction) for varying frequency of vibration at the dental tip (10–100 Hz). Sample weights were recorded before & after filling. This was followed by obturation over the same blocks using new proposed method (heat, vibration & compaction) and the weights were recorded after vibration aid. The same experiment was performed for the second group (of 10 samples) for constant frequency (50 Hz) at the dental tip. A statistical test (Student-t test) for these groups showed 21% enhancement over the conventional method. The variation in the results in the two groups was found insignificant based on 1-way ANOVA.
