CE Hours: 0
Technological advances during the last decade have brought new agitation devices for disinfection of the root canal system. Effective irrigant delivery and agitation are prerequisites for successful endodontic treatment. This lecture will present an overview of irrigants, irrigant agitation methods, their debridement efficacy and possible complications of their use.
At the conclusion, participants should be able to:
- Describe the risks and benefits of each of the most common irrigants.
- Describe the characteristics of flow dynamics.
- Describe the clinical protocol for irrigation.
