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.
PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
