OBJECTIVE Root canal irrigation is an important adjunct to control microbial infection. This study aimed primarily to develop a transparent root canal model to study in situ Enterococcus faecalis biofilm removal rate and remaining attached biofilm using passive or active irrigation solution for 90s. The change in available chlorine and pH of the outflow irrigant were assessed. METHODS A total of forty root canal models (n=10 per group) were manufactured using 3D printing. Each model consisted… CONTINUE READING
