INTRODUCTION Enterococcus faecalis is a species commonly isolated from persistent root canal infections. The purpose of this study was to compare the antibacterial effects of different disinfecting solutions on young and old E. faecalis biofilms in dentin canals using a novel dentin infection model and confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM). METHODS The bacteria were introduced into the dentinal tubules by centrifugation. After 1 day and 3 weeks of incubation, 40 infected dentin specimens… CONTINUE READING
