SP-14 Irrigation: Interactions Between Solutions
CE Credit: 0
Irrigation plays an important role in the debridement and disinfection of the root canal system and is an essential part of root canal preparation procedures. Countless compounds in aqueous solution have been suggested as root canal irrigants. However, the occurrence of persistent root canal infection is a common clinical problem in endodontics. The use of a combination of irrigants is particularly effective in the removal of organic and inorganic debris. Although such combination of irrigants may enhance their antimicrobial properties, possible chemical interactions among the irrigants have to be considered.
At the conclusion, participants should be able to:
- Discuss current research related to use of a combination of irrigants.
- Describe limitations in interactions among the irrigants.
- Describe the clinical implication of these interactions.
