AIM To test the antimicrobial activity of various gutta-percha points against Enterococcus faecalis in simulated root canals. METHODOLOGY Root canals were simulated by inoculated glass capillaries. A 2.5 microL increment of a suspension of E. faecalis was placed into 10 simulated root canals together with Calcium Hydroxide(R) points (CHP), Calcium Hydroxide Plus(R) points (CH+P), active points(R) (AP), conventional gutta-percha points (CP) (Coltène Whaledent, Langenau, Germany) or no points… CONTINUE READING
