Objectives The purpose of this study was to compare the antibacterial activity of urushiol against Enterococcus faecalis (E. faecalis) to that of NaOCl. Materials and Methods The canals of thirty two single rooted human teeth were instrumented with Ni-Ti files (ProTaper Next X1, X2, X3, Dentsply). A pure culture of E. faecalis ATCC 19433 was prepared in sterile brain heart infusion (BHI) broth. The teeth were submerged in the suspension of E. faecalis and were incubated at 37℃ for 7 days to…

Antibacterial Effect of Sodium Hypochlorite Gel and Solution on Enterococcus faecalis

NaOCl 5.25% in the form of a gel can be recommended as a safe and controllable intracanal irrigant and showed the same effectiveness as sodium hypochlorite solution and gel.

Antibacterial and Antibiofilm Efficacy of Antimicrobial Photodynamic Therapy Against Intracanal Enterococcus faecalis: An In Vitro Comparative Study with Traditional Endodontic Irrigation Solutions

APDT has a high potential for elimination of E. faecalis and is almost equivalent to NaOCl and CHX and can be used as an adjucnt to conventional endodontic irrigating solutions.

Antibacterial efficacy of silver diamine fluoride as a root canal irrigant

The purpose of the study was to evaluate the antibacterial efficacy of 3.8% silver diamine fluoride (SDF) in comparison with 2% chlorhexidine (CHX) against Enterococcus faecalis biofilm.

Antibiofilm activity of phytochemicals against Enterococcus faecalis: A literature review

The phenotypic and genetic attributes that contribute to antimicrobial tolerance of E. faecalis biofilms are described and the antibiofilm activity of phytochemicals against E. Faecalis are reported.

Chemical compounds Anti-bacterial of Citrus aurantifolia Ethanol Extract to Inhibit the Early Biofilm Formation and Growth of Enterococcus faecalis Root Canal Isolate

All concentrations of ethanol extract of Citrus aurantifolia showed their potential in inhibiting early phase (18 hours) biofilm formation and growth of E. faecalis clinical isolates and ATCC 29212 from planktonic and biofilm masses in vitro.

Effectiveness of Mixed Clove Flower Extract (Syzygium Aromaticum) And Sweet Wood (Cinnamon Burmanni) on the Growth of Enterococcus Faecalis

Failed root canal treatment can cause problems such as recurring pain and leave persistent bacteria in the root canal. One of the bacteria that often causes root canal treatment failure is

Effect of Different Types of Toothpaste on the Frictional Resistance Between Orthodontic Stainless Steel Brackets and Wires

Among the evaluated toothpastes, the orthodontic toothpaste did not increase the frictional resistance between the orthdontic stainless steel brackets and wires.



Residual antibacterial activity of chlorhexidine and MTAD in human root dentin in vitro.

The substantivity of BioPure MTAD was significantly greater than CHX and NaOCl in human root dentin, and the number of colony-forming units (CFU) was counted.

Vitality of Enterococcus faecalis inside dentinal tubules after five root canal disinfection methods

E. faecalis has the ability to colonize inside dentinal tubules to a depth of >1000 μm and in contrast to conventional irrigants, both Nd: YAG and diode lasers were effective in eliminating the vitality of E. Faecalis.

Effect of Passive Ultrasonic Irrigation on Enterococcus faecalis from Root Canals: An Ex Vivo Study.

Endodontic irrigation aims to clean and disinfect the root canal system. Passive ultrasonic irrigation (PUI) is based on the use of an ultrasound-activated instrument into the root canal filled with

Bacteria isolated after unsuccessful endodontic treatment in a North American population.

The composition of the microbial flora present in teeth after the failure of root canal therapy in a North American population was found to be mainly of 1 to 2 strains of predominantly gram-positive organisms.

Survival of Enterococcus faecalis in root canals ex vivo.

The clinical implications are that viable E. faecalis entombed at the time of root filling could provide a long-term nidus for subsequent infection.

An in vitro comparison of antimicrobial effcacy of three root canal irrigants-BioPure MTAD, 2% chlorhexidine gluconate and 5.25% sodium hypochlorite as a final rinse against E. faecalis.

It is concluded that BioPure MTAD is as effective against E. faecalis as 5.25% NaOCl and more effective than 2% CHX.

Viability and antibacterial efficacy of four root canal disinfection techniques evaluated using confocal laser scanning microscopy

Diode laser group showed better antibacterial efficacy and least viable bacteria when compared to conventional needle irrigation, PIPS and EndoActivator groups in minimally instrumented, experimentally infected root canals.

Irrigation in endodontics

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.
