A novel approach to the root canal cleaning

Friday, 11 Nov

12.10 am

In recent years the mechanical instrumentation has taken a leading role in the panorama of endodontics.
It’s obvious to everyone that the use of rotary instruments has speeded the techniques and permitted an increase in the quality of preparation and as a result of root filling, but has dramatically reduced the irrigation.

Today the trend is to dedicate a specific time for the cleansing even after root canal preparation.
New techniques allow to obtain an optimum degree of cleaning using irrigants more performing and subsonic or ultrasonic devices or lasers.

This greater degree of cleaning obtained even without a preparation with defined shapes of the channel which are suitable to a greater penetration of the irrigant allows us to imagine a new scenario in the realization of the endodontic therapy in which the shape of the channel is not so important.
