This study tested the hypothesis that the mechanical efficacy of irrigation in reducing intracanal bacteria is dependent on canal preparation size. Root canals of 30 extracted permanent cuspids were prepared consecutively to sizes 36, 60, and 77 at working length (WL) using ProFile 0.04 taper Series-29 files. Smear layer was removed and teeth autoclaved… CONTINUE READING
