Epidemiology and pathogenesis of Bacillus cereus infections.
TLDR
Bacillus cereus is a causative agent in both gastrointestinal and in nongastrointestinal infections and a special surface structure of B. cereus cells, the S-layer, has a significant role in the adhesion to host cells, in phagocytosis and in increased radiation resistance. Expand
Current challenges and concepts of the thermomechanical treatment of nickel-titanium instruments.
TLDR
This review summarizes the metallurgical properties of next-generation NiTi instruments, the impact of thermomechanical treatment on instrument flexibility, and the resistance to cyclic fatigue and torsion. Expand
Irrigation in endodontics.
TLDR
The chemistry, biology, and procedures for safe and efficient irrigation are summarized and cutting-edge information on the most recent developments are provided. Expand
Physical properties of 5 root canal sealers.
TLDR
The tested sealers were pseudoplastic according to their viscosities according to the ISO 6876/2001 recommendations as determined in this study. Expand
Irrigation in endodontics
TLDR
Different means of delivery are used for root canal irrigation, from traditional syringe-needle delivery to various machine-driven systems, including automatic pumps and sonic or ultrasonic energy. Expand
Antibacterial activity of endodontic sealers by modified direct contact test against Enterococcus faecalis.
TLDR
The pH of the sealers could not alone explain their antibacterial effect, and iRoot SP and EndoRez had the strongest antibacterial activity, followed by Sealapex and Epiphany; Tubli Seal and AH Plus did n'ot show any significant antib bacterial activity. Expand
Eradication of endodontic infection by instrumentation and irrigation solutions
TLDR
The goal of this review is to gather the relevant and most recent literature and provide an updated analysis of the effect of preparation (instrumentation and irrigation) on the microbial infection in the necrotic root canal. Expand
Antibacterial and smear layer removal ability of a novel irrigant, QMiX.
TLDR
QMiX and NaOCl were superior to CHX and MTAD under laboratory conditions in killing E. faecalis and plaque bacteria in planktonic and biofilm culture and ability to remove smear layer was comparable to EDTA. Expand
A new noninvasive model to study the effectiveness of dentin disinfection by using confocal laser scanning microscopy.
TLDR
The new model made it possible to compare the effectiveness of several disinfecting solutions in killing bacteria inside dentin by a noninvasive CLSM method and revealed a heavy invasion by E. faecalis deep into the dentinal tubules. Expand
Penetration of sodium hypochlorite into dentin.
TLDR
Temperature, time, and concentration all contribute to the penetration of sodium hypochlorite into dentinal tubules in root canal irrigants. Expand
