The antibacterial efficacy of irrigating solutions and local disinfectants used in endodontics appears poorer in vivo than in vitro. One explanation may be inactivation by compounds present in the root canal. MTAD (a mixture of tetracycline isomer, acid, and detergent) is a new root canal irrigation solution with antibacterial activity. The aim of this study was to investigate the antibacterial activity of MTAD and chlorhexidine towards two strains of Enterococcus faecalis and the inhibitory… CONTINUE READING
