Antibiotics as intracanal medicaments: a review.

Biofilms in endodontic infections. Bacterial biofilm has an open architecture with channels traversing from the biofilm surface.

Bactericidal effect of Nd: The efficacy of a particular agent was dependent on the nature of the organism in the biofilm and on the contact time. Longitudinal studies signalize that there medicamnts yet no accurate solution to eliminate or disrupt the root canal bacterial biofilm.

Comparative evaluation of antimicrobial efficacy of sodium hypochlorite, MTAD, and Tetraclean against Enterococcus faecalis biofilm.

English-language articles were’ retrieved from electronic biomedical journal databases and meeicaments records. None of the 8 articles referring to in vivo studies met all inclusion criteria Table 3.

The penetration of microorganisms in infected root dentin have shown variations considering the experimental model, the biological indicator and the time of incubation employed in the studies Table 4.

The major difficulty found in the present study was the great deal of available information, and the large number of investigations with agreeing and disagreeing conclusions. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC.


Thus, attached bacteria sessile growing in a biofilm display a wide range of characteristics that provide a number of advantages over single-cell planktonic bacteria. The irrigation solutions tested for 20 min were not sufficient to inactivate E. Antibacterial effects of endodontic irrigants on black-pigmented Gram-negative anaerobes and facultative bacteria.


George S, Kishen A. Toxicity testing of dental materials. More information is now available about the existence of polymicrobial biofilm communities on root canal walls coupled with new data showing that the adaptive mechanisms of bacteria in these biofilms are significantly augmented for increased survival.

Law A, Messer H. Author information Article notes Copyright and License information Disclaimer. The findings of in vitro studies Table 4 show an antimicrobial effectiveness of intracanal medicaments on bacterial biofilm 139 similarly to in vivo evaluations involving the presence of biofilm on all external root apex surfaces in teeth with pulp necrosis with periapical lesions Relevant aspects of the studies that met the inclusion criteria were considered, such as the experimental model and sample size, the time lapsed from the initial endodontic treatment until the present moment, the method of identification of the bacteria, the presence of bacteria on the initial samples, the chemical substances used during the root canal disinfection, the time of maintenance of the intracanal dressing prior to obturation, and the efficacy of the medicaments against the tested bacteria.

Microbial status of apical root canal system of human mandibular first molars with primary apical periodontitis after one-visit-endodontic treatment.

Scientifically based evidence that confirms the efficacy of intracanal medicaments on bacterial biofilm involves a profound reflection and discussion, regardless of the limits and caution with the methodology 16172136 Photodynamic therapy for endodontic disinfection. Based on the inclusion and exclusion, 91 articles were selected, of which 17 However, innumerous published articles on endodontic infection control are motive of controversy 19 – 111619242635 It is mandatory to consider the role and importance of biofilm in endodontics, as well as its definition.

Microbiological monitoring and results of treatment of extraradicular endodontic infection. Intracanal medicaments were found to have a limited action against bacterial biofilm.
