INTRODUCTION MTAD is a common intracanal irrigant. Although MTAD inhibits Enterococcus faecalis in root canals, its bactericidal effect against E. faecalis remains to be improved. Nisin, an antibacterial peptide, possesses a strong bactericidal effect. The study evaluated the synergetic action between MTAD and nisin against E. faecalis. METHODS The minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) and minimal bactericidal concentration (MBC) were used to measure the antibacterial activities of MTAD… CONTINUE READING
