Presence of extra roots and canals should be considered before initiation of root canal treatment for the success of endodontic treatment. A mandibular second premolar with three separate roots is very rare and its prevalence has been reported to be around 0.1%. This case report explains non-surgical endodontic treatment of a mandibular second premolar with(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE As the Enterococcus faecalis biofilm ages, it is likely that bacteria in mature and old biofilms will become more resistant to commonly used antibacterial irrigants. Photodynamic therapy (PDT) has been used to kill resistant bacteria organized in a biofilm. This study aimed to investigate the antimicrobial effectiveness of 1% sodium(More)
BACKGROUND Persistent infection of the root canal due to the presence of resistance bacterial species, such as Enterococcus faecalis, has always been one of the most important reasons for endodontic treatment failure. This study investigated the antimicrobial efficacy of 1%, 2.5 % and 5% sodium hypochlorite in eliminating E. faecalis biofilms at different(More)
