    Product not yet rated Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Speaker: Qian Xie, D.D.S., Ph.D.| Root canal irrigation plays a key role in the removal the pulp tissue, contaminants, debris and microorganisms from the root canal system.

    CE Hours: 1.0

    Description: Root canal irrigation plays a key role in the removal the pulp tissue, contaminants, debris and microorganisms from the root canal system. Different adjunctive agitation techniques have been developed to help irrigating solutions penetrate the complexities of a root canal system. Passive ultrasonic irrigation, multisonic agitation (Gentlewave™), sonic activation (EndoActivator™), and apical negative pressure irrigation systems (EndoVac™) have been reported to be superior to conventional positive pressure needle irrigation in regards to smear layer removal, antimicrobial effect, and decreased post-operative pain. However, is there enough evidence to show these adjunctive agitation techniques actually improve the success of root canal treatment? Based on a review of the current literature and personal clinical experience, the potential advantages of the commonly used systems will be explored

      List commonly used adjunctive agitation irrigation techniques.
    • Evaluate the current best available evidence to support the use of specific adjunctive agitation irrigation techniques.
