Aim: The aim of this study is to compare the effect of different intermediate irrigant in removing residual sodium hypochlorite before irrigating with chlorhexidine by elemental analysis of precipitate formed by the residual sodium hypochlorite using Environmental Scanning Electron Microscopic Energy Dispersive X-Ray Spectroscopy (ESEM-EDS) system. Methodology: Forty extracted single rooted premolars were decoronated and divided into four groups GROUP I (positive control): The irrigation of the…

Assessment of leakage of roots filled with Epiphany and Resilon after final irrigation with 2% chlorhexidine
TLDR
It was showed that 2% chlorhexidine when used after 17% EDTA and 2.5% sodium hypochlorite did not adversely affect the leakage of root canal system filled with Epiphany and Resilon.
Comparison of antibacterial and toxic effects of various root canal irrigants.
TLDR
Cetrexidin and 2% chlorhexidine gluconate were more effective, and had more residual antibacterial effects and lower toxicity than 5.25% NaOCl solution.
Evaluation of the interaction between sodium hypochlorite and chlorhexidine gluconate and its effect on root dentin.
Chlorhexidine substantivity in root canal dentin.
Substantive antimicrobial activity in chlorhexidine-treated human root dentin.
TLDR
Canal dressing for 1 week with 2% CHX may provide residual antimicrobial activity against E faecalis, and mean optical densities were significantly lower for groups with 2%, when compared with those of the controls.
Evaluation of the colour change in enamel and dentine promoted by the interaction between 2% chlorhexidine and auxiliary chemical solutions.

TLDR
CHX has the ability to induce a colour change in dental structures when used prior to NaOCl, and is promoted by interaction of 2% chlorhexidine gluconate with 5.25% sodium hypochlorite and 17% ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid.
