Background and Aim: The role of applying rotary instruments in reducing preparation time and proper root canal preparation have been approved in permanent teeth. The aim of this study was to compare the rotary instruments (Hero642) and K-files in root canal preparation of primary molars. Time and canal transportation were compared.

Materials and Methods: In this experimental, invitro study, 30 human extracted primary molars with 8 mm length were selected and divided into two equal groups. After preparing access cavity, group 1was prepared by K-files and group 2 by Hero642 systems. Before canal preparation, with # 15 K-file and after canal preparation, with master apical file, canal curvature was evaluated by Weine technique using Radiovisiography. Apical transportation was calculated. Time taken for preparation was recorded by chronometer. The results were analyzed with T-test and Mann-Whitney. P<0.05 was considered as the level of significance.

Results: The average canal transportation angle was 3.42 for Hero642 group and 7.33 for K-file group (p<0.04). The mean instrumentation time was 4.28 for Hero642 group and 8.76 minutes for K-file group (p<0.001). There was a significant difference between two groups.

Conclusion: Based on the findings of this study, it is suggested to apply Hero642 rotary instrument for primary molar canal preparation due to less preparation time and less canal transposition.
