Was evaluated the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) and the antibacterial effect (AE) of 2.5% NaOCl, 0.2% chlorhexidine gluconate (CHX) and 17% EDTA on Enterococcus faecalis. The antibacterial capacity was assessed by difusion in agar. The AE was evaluated on contaminated root dentin, employing apical and middle portions of human roots, sterilized and contaminated with Enterococcus faecalis, immersed in the irrigation solutions and incubated at 37 degrees C. Viable cells were counted at 0…

The Antibacterial Effect of QMix, a Novel Root Canal Irrigant (Ex vivo Study)
TLDR
In the MIC and MBC techniques, Chlorhexidinedigluconate was found superior to both QMix and EDTA, and was the only irrigant solution to kill all E. faecalis cells, as well as killing more than 95% of all bacteria at 5 seconds exposure.
In vitro Analysis of Minimal Inhibitory Concentrations of NaOCl, CHX, MTAD, and EDTA against Enterococcus faecalis
TLDR
The results of this study indicated that MTAD had the most robust and efficient antimicrobial effects, compared with other test substances, both at full concentration and when diluted fivefold.
Antibacterial activity of chitosan and its combination with other irrigants on Enterococcus faecalis: An in vitro study
TLDR
According to this study, there is synergistic antibacterial activity when chitosan is used alternatively with 2% CHX or 5% NaOCl, which is almost similar to that seen in the control group and also among five experimental groups.
Antimicrobial effect of phytic acid on Enterococcus faecalis
TLDR
IP6 exhibits in vitro antibacterial effect against E. faecalis at low concentrations according to the results of MIC and MBC, which indicated that IP6 showed the smallest zone of inhibition in agar diffusion test.
In vitro antimicrobial activity of maleic acid and ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid on endodontic pathogens.
Antimicrobial efficacy of nanosilver, sodium hypochlorite and chlorhexidine gluconate against Enterococcus faecalis
TLDR
This study revealed that NS in a remarkably lower concentration would possess the same bactericidal effect as 5.25% NaOCl.
Antimicrobial activity of endodontic sealers based on calcium hydroxide and MTA.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the antimicrobial activity of a new root canal sealer containing calcium hydroxide (Acroseal) and the root canal sealer based on MTA (Endo CPM Sealer), in
THE EFFECT OF DIFFERENT IRRIGANTS AND INTRA CANAL DRESSING ON SINUS TRACT CLOSURE
TLDR
It was concluded that Ca (OH)2/CHX paste as intra canal dressing has good clinical efficacy in the control of root canal infection and sinus tract closure.
The influence of the irrigating solution on the percentage of dentinal tubule sealer penetration: evaluation with Rhodamine B
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that there appears to be no significant difference in the percentage of sealer penetration between the irrigants tested, when smear layer was removed with 17% EDTA.
Antifungal and Synergistic Effects of the Ethyl Acetate Extract of Tanacetum vulgare (L.) Against Candida albicans
TLDR
The EthOAc extract of T. vulgare may be a useful tool to discover natural bioactive agents that have antifungal activity against C. albicans and could be used as endodontic therapies.

In vitro antimicrobial activity of various medication preparations on E. faecalis in root canal dentin.
TLDR
Evaluating the antimicrobial activity of several medication preparations in root canal dentin infected with Enterococcus faecalis suggests that 10% Ca(OH)2 may be more effective than Peridex or 10%Ca( OH)2 in PerideX for the elimination of E. faecals from dentin tubules.
Susceptibilties of two Enterococcus faecalis phenotypes to root canal medications.
TLDR
NaOCl was the most effective agent and achieved 100% kills for all presentations of E. faecalis after a 2 min contact time and was also used as a control agent.
Efficacy of chlorhexidine in disinfecting dentinal tubules in vitro.
TLDR
Chlorhexidine and NaOCl significantly reduced the bacterial counts in the first 100 microns of dentinal tubules, however up to 50% of dentine samples remained infected following use of both agents.
Antimicrobial effectiveness of electro-chemically activated water as an endodontic irrigation solution.
TLDR
ECA did not demonstrate antimicrobial effectiveness within the confines of this study, and neither of the ECA solutions were found to be effective against all the bacteria.
Chemomechanical reduction of the bacterial population in the root canal after instrumentation and irrigation with 1%, 2.5%, and 5.25% sodium hypochlorite.
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that regular exchange and the use of large amounts of irrigant should maintain the antibacterial effectiveness of the NaOCl solution, compensating for the effects of concentration.
Antimicrobial effect of irrigant combinations within dentinal tubules.
TLDR
All irrigant regimens were more effective than saline in killing bacteria and at specific concentrations a synergistic effect was noted when mixtures of chlorhexidine and hydrogen peroxide were under test.
The effect of chlorhexidine gluconate irrigation on the root canal flora of freshly extracted necrotic teeth.
Disinfection by endodontic irrigants and dressings of experimentally infected dentinal tubules.
TLDR
Endodontic medicaments were applied to infected specimen for comparison of antibacterial potency, and camphorated p-monochlorophenol was generally more efficient than Calasept, and of the irrigants tested, iodine potassium iodide appeared more potent than sodium hypochlorite or chlorhexidine.
