Abstract

Introduction: The root canal system must be mechanically instrumented and chemically cleaned using various antimicrobial irrigants in a sequential manner or in combination for the elimination of necrotic pulp tissue and reducing the number of root canal bacteria. For this reason, new methods and materials are continuously being developed to achieve the objectives of endodontic treatment.
