Aim: To compare instrumentation time between Hand K-files and Rotary Kedo-S files in primary mandibular molars. Method: A randomized clinical trial was carried on 30 patient aged between of 4–8 years requiring pulpectomy in primary mandibular molars. Patients were equal distributed for instrumentation with Hand K files and Rotary Kedo-S files. Results: The mean instrumentation time observed for instrumentation with Rotary Kedo-S files is 9.400.53 min. The mean instrumentation time observed for instrumentation with Hand K-file is 13.010.85. Conclusion: The instrumentation time with Rotary Kedo-S files was significantly less as compared to Hand K-file instrumentation.
Keywords: Pulpectomy, Rotary endodontics, Kedo-S file, K file.
