Topic : Endodontic Disinfection: Current Strategies and Protocols


Abstract :

Disinfection strategies in endodontics are aimed to eliminate biofilm bacteria not only from the main canals but also from the uninstrumented portions and anatomical complexities of the root canal system without inducing untoward effects on peri radicular tissue. The potential for an irrigant is maximized when it is heated, flooded into shaped canals, and given ample time to work. In this lecture the several advantages in the clinical endodontic outcome due to integration of new technologies, coupled with enhanced techniques such as sonic, ultrasonic and laser activation of irrigants will be discussed. This lecture also will describe systems designed to improve the intracanal bacterial decontamination by a specific chemical action, such as ozone, direct laser action or light-activated disinfection. The use of nanoparticles and application of newer systems using a broad spectrum of sound waves in the root canal disinfection will also be discussed.
