BACKGROUND Recent studies have suggested that high-pressure irrigation may have adverse effects on bone. However, the use of low-pressure irrigation may not remove all adherent bacteria from bone. The type of irrigating solution may be an important factor in the removal of adherent bacteria with pulsatile lavage. In this study, we compared the effects of various irrigating solutions on the number and function of osteoblasts and osteoclasts and we examined the effectiveness of these solutions in… CONTINUE READING
