BACKGROUND This study aimed to evaluate the antibacterial effect and the biofilm disruption promoted by antimicrobial photodynamic therapy (aPDT) associated with sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) and chlorexidine (CHX) over monospecies and multispecies biofilms. METHODS In monospecies model, forty-six premolars were inoculated with Enterococcus faecalis for 21days and divided into three groups: saline, CHX and NaOCl. After irrigation, aPDT was performed. Samples were collected at baseline (S1) and… CONTINUE READING
