Evaluation of antimicrobial effectiveness and dentine mechanical properties after use of chemical and natural auxiliary irrigants.


OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of GSE, NaOCl, CHX and QMix as an antimicrobial agents against Enterococcus faecalis and their influence on flexural and ultimate tensile strength of root canal dentine. METHODS Root canals were divided into five groups (n=10) according to the substances used: 2.5% NaOCl, 2% CHX, 6.5% GSE, Qmix and control group (distilled… (More)
