An absorbent paper point, often referred to as a paper point, is a dental material used within a dental or hospital setting, particularly in endodontic procedures (root canal treatments). Here’s how absorbent paper points are used:

  1. Moisture Absorption: Absorbent paper points are designed to absorb excess moisture from the root canal during endodontic procedures. Moisture control is crucial to ensure effective adhesion of sealers and obturation materials.

  2. Dry Canal Preparation: Before filling and sealing the root canal, it is essential to have a dry and moisture-free environment. Absorbent paper points are inserted into the prepared root canal to absorb any residual moisture and create an optimal condition for subsequent procedures.

  3. Cleaning and Drying: After shaping and cleaning the root canal using files and irrigants, absorbent paper points are used to remove debris, remnants of pulp tissue, and irrigation solutions. They help in drying the canal thoroughly.

  4. Size Variation: Absorbent paper points come in various sizes and taper configurations to match the dimensions of the prepared root canal. Different sizes are used sequentially to ensure proper cleaning and drying of the entire canal.

  5. Biocompatibility: The material used in absorbent paper points is typically biocompatible and non-reactive with the tissues of the root canal. This ensures that the material does not provoke adverse reactions or interfere with the healing process.

  6. Temporary Sealing: In some cases, absorbent paper points can be used as a temporary seal to protect the root canal between appointments. This helps prevent contamination and maintains the integrity of the canal before the final obturation.

  7. Radiopacity: Like Gutta Percha, another material used in endodontics, some absorbent paper points are radiopaque, making them visible on dental X-rays. This feature aids in assessing the depth of placement and evaluating the quality of the root canal filling.

  8. Supporting Treatment Procedures: Absorbent paper points play a supportive role in the various steps of endodontic treatment, facilitating effective cleaning, shaping, and obturation of the root canal system.

It’s important to note that absorbent paper points are just one component of the overall endodontic procedure. They are used in conjunction with other instruments and materials to ensure the success of root canal treatments by providing a clean and dry environment for subsequent steps in the process.
