The activation of irrigation solutions in Endodontics: a perfected technique
Aim: In endodontics a complete chemo mechanical cleansing of the complex root canal system is essential in order to achieve a theraupetic success. Methodology: Sodium hypoclorite due to its antimicrobial and proteolytic characteristic, is an efficient endodontic irrigant and it is the most commonly used. The following article introduces a refined technique in order to increase the degree of cleansing during endodontic treatment. The technique involves intracanal heating of the irrigants through a heat source. Results: The described technique is able to enhance simply and considerably the use of sodium hypochlorite, making it easily accessible even to generic operators. Conclusions: To confirm the validity of this improved technique, further research and scientific studies are needed, although at the clinical level, the results by using it are very satisfactory.
